Times are changing

February 11th, 2008

 Neil Postman wrote that “Technological change is not additive; it is ecological. A new technology does not merely add something; it changes everything…” [1] keeping that in mind and looking back at the last decade we can notice at least two disruptive technologies that emerged and caused a huge cultural shift. One is the World Wide Web, especially what is known as web.2.0, and the other one is wireless communication, mobile handsets in particular. These technologies have changed, and keep changing perceptions of society, of time and place, of the way people are acting and participating in social activities and in the way they relate to the objects that surround them.
