It's really hard to believe that a long time ago when the internet wasn’t born yet (that was like billions of years ago, right?) the only technology that we were able to use is abacus, our fingers, old-fashioned cameras and etc. Technology evolved at such a rapid pace, that some of us are having such a really hard time catching up.

The internet is the most modern way to communicate with the people around the world, or if you're like my kids, the other side of the couch.

The internet actually was born in the 1960’s. In this way, a single signal can be sent to multiple users. The way we used to do that was to send handwritten letters to people, which I still love to get by the way. Now, most people use e-mail or instant messages through applications (apps for you younger kids) for sending messages to people so that you get that instant answer. I do it too, but once in a while, I love to sit down and hand write letters or holiday cards.

Yahoo!, Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, and more were born.

The concept of the e-mail was developed through ARPANET (The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network was an early packet switching network and the first network to implement the protocol suite TCP/IP. Both technologies became the technical foundation of the Internet.) as did the bulletin-board system.

In 1991, was introduced to the people of what we call now as the World Wide Web, or WWW. WWW is the part of the Internet that most users see and use and which has made it so popular. This gave birth to a big boom in web usage. The web continuous its growth in a very incredible way. There are now a billion upon billions of pages of the web across the world.

And now that internet has come to be my way of learning, discovering and seeing new things.

I feel that I’m very lucky to have my internet to hold on to. I'm sure many of my awesome readers wouldn't know what to do if they couldn't read my awesome blog posts instantly on their smartphones, tablets, or laptops!

Andrew Charlton talks a lot about technology and the future of living with automation. Many people live very automated lives now. You have your bills automatically debited from your bank accounts or credit cards.

In an article on the Financial Review, Andrew Charlton writes:

Automation isn't a force we can stop. There is no doubt that over the long-term, automation technologies will be the primary engine of prosperity, lifting wages, living standards and work conditions. But in the short-term these same technologies present risks that must be managed to ensure that all Australians benefit and the gains are fairly shared.
