Is there such a thing as "pre-modern" telecommunication[edit]

I changed some of the material in the introduction to avoid saying that smoke signals, semaphores, etc., are "telecommunications." The word wasn't even used in English prior to 1923 (if Google Ngrams can be trusted). Also, the definition of telecommunication says:

communication over a distance by cable, telegraph, telephone, or broadcasting.
(telecommunications) [ treated as sing. ] the branch of technology concerned with telecommunication.
formal a message sent by telecommunication.

So it seems to specifically exclude that type of communication.

I tried to do it in a minimalist way, though, saying that these are earlier methods of communication at a distance. Even so, not sure they belong. Ngriffeth (talk) 19:07, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Definition[edit]

"Telecommunication is communication at a distance by technological means" -- no, Telecommunication is communication at a distance, period -- whatever connotations may usually (and not necessarily) accompany it. Wyresider (talk) 23:58, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
