When you think about technological advancement, you would think that life would become simpler. But it only seems to become more complex, regardless of the speed and efficiency a new gadget brings to the table. While technologies certainly make individual tasks simpler, easier, and more efficient, it also frees us up for more and more tasks! The end result? Our lives become even more complicated, because more is expected of us!
Basic logic tells us when something becomes easier it always comes at the expense of something else. The thing is, now that we are able to do more work in less time, it requires us to be jacks of all trades, as opposed to the “specialists” that we used to be. Thus, if you look at the impact of technology from a more distant perspective, it has made life and work more complex for most American workers, from those at the bottom to those at the very top.
Although technology has made almost every task imaginable faster, easier, and more efficient, the trade off is the world moving so quickly that it is almost impossible for mere mortals to keep pace. This means that it is almost impossible for any business to do, say, state of the art web design without outside help. In fact, even if they were, it probably would not be as cost effective as hiring a website reseller. While easy to use software makes it possible to create your own website, it is unlikely that any company can do resell websites design as well, and as affordably as website reseller programs.
Of course, website reseller programs are merely one small example of a number of services that have been created in response to a growing need for outsourcing. Entire industries, such as resell website development, have been built upon technological foundations that did not exist a generation ago. In fact, many of us who would be doing radically different things with our lives were it not for the development of certain technologies, particularly computers, the internet, and digital communications.
Although the generation growing up during the “Information Age” will have an easier time in many ways than previous generations, every generation encounters news challenges that are unique from preceding ones. As such, the battle that the children of today will face as adults is one of constant change and maintaining an ability to adapt easily to new methods and challenges.
