Back in the 1980s, the era in which personal computers made breakthroughs in offices, schools and in homes. The first computers are large and they take longer to power up. In contrast to the computing devices, we use today. However, today’s computers represent radical changes in life. Because the typewriter soon became an ancient relic.
Social Changes via the Tech Revolution
However, just like the emergence of a faster and more sophisticated computer. Later there will be more changes. As if the means of communication always carried by personal computers was not enough, in the 1990s. Something called “the Internet” comes into everyone’s life, and things change faster.
As the Internet caught on as a means of quickly communicating with everyone everywhere, at lightning speed, many of the old ways of doing things fell by the wayside.
While in the final years of paper and pens, the postal service offers a way of applying for jobs or bank loans or schools, now all the tasks we can do in a digital way. Over time, society adjusted to these changes, even as the Internet also changed the way people read and write.
Changes in the Publishing Industry
As all of this social change progressed, changes in the publishing industry were inevitable. While in the past, magazines with content ranging from fashion tips to information on industrial vacuum components and thin film were always distributed in print, today those types of publications (and books) are usually available in print and in digital form. What’s interesting to note is that the digital revolution didn’t totally stop the printing industry.
Ultimately, what is visible is that even with all the changes that occur over the Internet, people still love to read. They love reading books and magazines they can hold when they enjoy the information they follow. In some ways, this fact defies the changes of the Internet revolution, but ultimately, it’s rather reassuring, too.
