The more things change...
We talk more and more about how technology is changing the way we live our lives.
When you really look at it...technology changes how we do things in our lives...not why we do things.
We used to call people on the phone or write them letters so we can stay connected.
We now text, poke, post, tweet, update...so we can stay connected.
We used to read to be entertained, informed and educated.
Now we not only read...but we contribute so we can be entertained, informed and educated and entertain, inform and educate.
We used to build relationships with our neighbors so we can grow our trust network.
We now build relationships with our communities...so we can grow our trust network.
We used to go door to door before we buy something so we don't make a bad purchase.
We now go site to site before we buy something...so we don't make a bad purchase.
Tradition and technology.
It's not reinventing the wheel...it's just replacing a spoke.
