Well, strap in folks, because we're about to take a wild ride through the history of media! It all started back in the good old days, around 59 B.C., when the Romans decided to put their gossip on daily bulletins known as Acta Diurna. Fast forward a few centuries, and voila! We have the invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in the 1400s, a game changer that made books and news more accessible to the masses. Then, in the late 1800s, we got the first taste of electronic media with the invention of the telegraph and telephone. And trust me, it didn't stop there! The 20th century saw media explode with the advent of radio, television, and of course, the internet - the place where cats rule and memes are the currency.
