The way of life has changed dramatically within the last century. These changes have mainly been attributed to the fast development of various technologies, including computers, automobiles, and most influentially, the internet. Our world today has become very digitized, and these digital changes have influenced the way we communicate, travel, and go about our daily lives.
In my grandparents’ era, there were no computers or smartphones, and cars were just beginning to take over as the main form of transportation. They relied on word of mouth, handwritten notes, and manual labor. Information came from radios and newspapers, and more time was spent outdoors rather than huddled over a screen.
The world today is fast-moving and constantly changing. The internet has revolutionized the way we communicate and share ideas, and globalization has increased more than ever. Information on almost any subject imaginable is readily available to the general public, and infrastructure is expanding rapidly.
