The World Since 1982

May 2024

I think the greatest change in the world since my birth has been the drastic conversion from physical technologies to digital ones. Before computers and microchips, everything that had to be communicated over long distances was done on paper, a valuable resource recklessly abused over the last few hundred years. Now we can communicate the same way and faster. We have gone from sending letters across the sea to telegraphs and now to instantaneous delivery of any kind of written or visual material.
