In an increasingly globalised and networked world, to transmit is to exist. In a sense this has always been the case as transmitting is at the heart of human communication and works on many different levels, including information, knowledge, culture, language, and media. What has changed then is not so much the action of transmitting itself, but rather the speed of transmission, facilitated by increasingly sophisticated transmission tools and widening access to those tools. This in turn has major implications for the volume of transmissions and the ability or inability to process them. In this context of content overload and fierce competition for attention, to transmit effectively becomes vital, whether on a professional, personal, community or global level. This special issue of M/C Journal includes 10 essays that address the theme of 'transmit' in different ways.
