+ The business me -- my career
New technology terrifies many people. Technology most often equates to change and having to change the way we do things, really frightens people. We live at the confluence of ongoing technological innovations in computer technology, telecommunications, and digital imagery to name just a few. Daily life as we know it over the next 10-15 years will continue to change at an accelerated rate. You will need to learn new things on a daily basis or risk feeling [and being] further out of touch with the world you live in. Programming your VCR will seem like a trivial task compared to some of the new things you will be asked to learn.
Unfortunately the world is becoming more technological. New technology means change. With change comes uncertainty. Is it time for me to change? Am I doing the right thing? Where do I find all this new information I'm supposed to learn, even if I had the time?
New technology often brings with it a number of new concepts and new tools to master. Internet technology, as I see it, is a key technology because it offers a solution to surviving in an era of rapid technological change. It offers a new paradigm of learning, learning about anything and everything. It is the best means of imparting computing skills to the masses (the non-technonerd population) that I have seen. The Internet, particularly the World Wide Web, is the best example of both a concept and an associated set of tools that advocates information sharing, learning, and ultimately technology itself. The rapid growth of the Internet is the best proof of its success. The Web has evolved tremendously in the years since it's introduction and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
