Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Its 2011 and we have become a very electronic, technologically advanced, linked in society. Most of what we do on a day to day basis has to do with some technology. We can safely say that technology is impacting our economy. Both in a positive way as well as a negative way.

Most of what we do on a day to day basis has to do with some technology. We can safely say that technology is impacting our economy. Both in a positive way as well as a negative way.

Mobile communications are now the standard by which we communicate. There are even laws created for how we use our mobile technology to communicate, while driving and at certain establishments or events. It has become part of our norm. You must own a mobile phone else you have fallen into the dark ages of yesteryear.

Television viewing, standard in the 60s and beyond, is in a state of evolution. The great broadcasting networks have slipped, fallen and cannot get up. They have been usurped by the likes of independent subscription based networks. Even how we watch tv is in a state of evolution as the likes of the great providers is fading in favor of streaming video services like Netflix and Hulu. You get exactly what you pay for, and are no longer being forced to pay for 17 Spanish speaking channels, when you don’t even speak Spanish at all.

Books, magazines and newspapers have evolved. Now all are provided in electronic format and the electronic format has begun a serious evolution of its own. Huge opportunities for advertisers, polls, reader feedback and other electronic communications have arrived and will start appearing more and more as the publishers realize they have almost missed the boat, where as great thinking, progressive agencies like Amazon or Apple have reaped the rewards already. Why simply read a book, magazine or newspaper, when you can now EXPERIENCE it completely.

Computers became a standard tool in every household a while back, but now, coupled with new and improved mobile technology, computers are going hand held, lighter, more accessible to all people, and truly dynamic. There will shortly be no reason for static work stations. Employees will have freedom to move about and work anywhere. They can even take their computers to meetings directly. Where the laptop failed somewhat because of its heaviness, battery controlled time ability, and heat, lighter mobile tablets are becoming the future of mobile computers with flash based memories eliminating the need for obsolete hard drives at all.

And finally, the day of the App and the Cloud have arrived. No longer a need to purchase software on a CD had basically eliminated the need for the CD at all. You can now get lots of good software from the Cloud as a living, breathing App. And its cheaper.

Yes, Virginia, Technology is impacting the economy in a big way. It was thought, only a short time ago, that the real estate market was holding our economy from the brink of absolute destruction. But I wager to say, that indeed while Real Estate continues to crumble inwards on the banks that raped its life cycle, technology will be shown to be the gold backing our dollar. If we do not invest in technology and push for newer, valid innovations then we will be passed by our “world rivals”. Invest heavily in technology in schools, at work, and at home. Drop your Beta or VHS recording, no matter how much you loved it, and begin to see the new world that is here right now.
