Thanks Mararetha for these questions that have been looming in the back of my mind as well.  I am traveling but have been captivated by the thoughtful responses and thrilled that our subscribers Norie and Melinda chimed in last week from Australia. My experiences in China this past week I hope to share with you—after I recover from jet lag —but please know to all of you what an engaging beginning this topic has been.  Cross-species communication theoretically and practically thinking through eco-consciousness and networked culture has resonances far and wide not only in the west but also the east. Hope to hear what you all have to say.

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.
