Getting Behind the Information Age

information age

Keeping up with technology is a constant struggle for many professionals, including those in the field of Privacy and Law which are among some of the oldest standing professions. Humans have been around for centuries, and for the first time in our lives, i.e. the last 40 years, we now have computers.  Our current period in human history has dramatically shifted because of technology. In the last handful of decades, traditional processes have now been outdated and outpaced.

Obstacles

Because technology is constantly evolving, we constantly have to update our businesses or we face the chance of falling behind. This means keeping up to date with current advances in technology that are relative to our businesses. To remedy the risk of falling behind, it is important to be subscribed to a technology blog and to keep up with news relative to technology.

If you own a company online, security can be an ever threatening obstacle – especially when it comes to protecting your client’s information confidential, as well as your own.  Cyber security is becoming a more prominent priority the further our civilization develops in the Information Age.

Observations

With the number of people increasing their time spent online for products and services, as well as connecting for social media to keep up to date with current statuses and relationships of friends and loved ones, the issue of Life Quality becomes relevant. People are spending more time connecting online than they are in person. The human touch, interaction, and presence are essential to our evolution and well-being. To be connected with people and accepted is a natural human need. When we replace having guests together for a quality meal for interaction on the internet, this depletes our life quality. Younger generations are less social and less trusting of traditional ways. The human interaction is slowly diminishing, as technology becomes bored intertwined in our lives. Issues that arise from too much time online, also called  Computer-related mental-health problems, include isolation, online gambling, and stress (highered.mheducation.com).

 

Author Quote:

Arthur C. Clarke formulated three adages that are known as Clarke’s three laws, of which the third law is the best known and most widely cited:

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
