Times today are significantly different then they were just a few years ago. The internet since its nascence has been growing, expanding, and involving. Our generation is one of the first to have almost unlimited access to the world wide web. I believe that the advance of mobile technology is significant to how well informed our generation is. From my blackberry I can check and send emails, visit websites, view videos, even write this blog post. If we don't know the answer to something, we google it. Instant answer, instant gratification. 10 years ago the world was a different place. Wi-fi was not available in most places and 3G networks were unthought of. Where we see huge differences between then and now is the speed and depth of information available. Nobody goes to libraries and rifles through old volumes anymore, you use jstor or another online service. Huge deals can be conducted between corporations in a matter of minutes, instead of days. The world is moving at a much faster pace then it used to and our generation has learned to become accustomed to this. We read faster, talk faster and move faster then ever before, and we will continue to as long as the technological world follows this trend.
How fast is too fast?
