[-empyre-] Has mediated natures changed your ideas of what communication is?

Greetings in this soft_skinned_space,

I often find myself frustrated by theories and descriptions of
cross-species communication that fit a 20th-century/ early cybernetics
model of information (aka Claude Shannon's flawed model that elides the
meanings of transmission and of communication, establishes information as
quantifiable and able to lose its materiality).

I'm wondering -- Benjamin and Julie especially, and Elaine & others may
pitch in as well -- if your work with media and animals has led you to new
understandings of communication, and what theorists you look to back up
your experiences and ideas.
