It wasn’t until the 70’s when tech geniuses like Vinton Cerf and Robert Kahn created transmission protocols in which one computer could interact with another computer. From this early birthing point, it was realized how much of an impact this inter-computer communication would make on the rest of the world. The general public understands the luxuries that the internet and technology provide us, but few individuals truly understand the core belief behind the expansion of these platforms.
In laymen’s terms, the internet and technology market is centered around one core belief: information should be free and shared selflessly. Taking a look at any major organization will reveal this truth to you; the underlying business model is that of selling information. In conjunction with this, convenience is always maximized in the creation of any piece of technology being introduced into the marketplace. Thinking back only a few decades into our past will give us a true understanding of how difficult it was to share information over large distances.
With information being uploaded and shared within a matter of seconds, a new revolution has started with expansion at the helm. Consumers yearn for technology that helps alleviate problems and issues that flood their personal life. Technology companies, like most corporations in the market today, are in the business of eliminating pain. The entrepreneurial mind is one that seeks a pain in the market place and immediately goes to work to find a solution.
The pain within our current society is that of over-stimulation from our technology. We are still in the infancy years and we’ve yet to master the ability to control our impulses. Once the satiation period expires, we are left with a culture of highly intelligent people armed with technology that gives them knowledge in a moment’s notice. This progression will allow our society to advance in all aspects as time moves forward. New breakthroughs in medical endeavors, clean energy and space exploration are written into the future of our species.
