We live in times of exponentially improving technology that has already changed our society in ways once barely imaginable. It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago, computers were rarely soon and that 60 years ago television was a new technology.
To take this even further, computers that now exist are millions of times more powerful than their early ancestors of only about 30 years ago. Not only are they becoming more powerful, but their size, portability, and overall usage have improved drastically as well. It is predicted that in 2013 we will have computers that are better processors than the human brain!
In school, information on new sciences becomes outdated in 2 years making half of what is learned during a 4 year program obsolete upon graduation. The new applicable knowledge comes in form of adaptability and the ability to keep up with the ever changing technological world.
It’s hard to even truly believe that the world is changing at these rates and it makes it truly amazing to think as to where we will be in 20 years, in 50 years, in 100 years! To be able to witness these days is truly amazing.
