Bards to Bits

SAS Editorial

Getting information (news) about the world around us is not a new phenomenon. It has been going since the beginning of time. People would share information, often through bards who went around sharing the news. Word of mouth was the only method to transmit information for centuries.

Words were eventually written down and literally, history as we know it begins. The news is still spoken for people to hear because most did not read and text was rare. With the written word consistency was preserved. The world becomes smaller as news is shared from village to village.
