Every Device That Connects Us( Info Graphic)

Whether you are reading this on your cell phone, laptop, desktop or whatever other device you are using, it’s still a technology gadget that will connect you to the millions of people if you want it to. The ways we can connect with each other has skyrocketed beyond comparison the last 20 years, and it’s unlikely it will stop increasing in speed. The ways that we communicate are becoming easier, shorter and even more intuitive (sometimes), and I am sure that we will find that email will soon be obsolete to whatever is the new way of making business friendships. Web conferencing and conference call services for example were supposed to completely change the field of face to face transactions but that hasnt exactly scattered into our every say routines. For now, email remains as the main way of communicating longer conversations, especially business conversations.



For the first time (I guess), we can get a clear view of how the technological infrastructure was built and to what extent it reaches out. As you can see, the numbers represented get multiplied with each major technological milestone, and it’s easy to see that we’re heading for something really interesting in the future. Whatever it will be that will beat the Internet will be major, and even though I can’t imagine what that will be right now, it’s still exciting to know that we always come up with something to beat the previous technology. What do you think will be the next big thing in technology that will top the Internet?   Will we become a civilization that will value web conferencing services over face to face discussions? Slowly but surely we as a society have the key to our future and what we decide what will become of us.

Without a doubt, technology continues to shape and mold humanity. Very interesting.

heddin said...

I actually don't like that graphic at all. Graphic displays are meant to be informative, but also simple, easy to read and not to overload on the information.

But hey, what're you gonna do with all that tech if not make ridiculous graphs? :)

John said...

holy crapp...It's simply amazing how big the internet is, and how fast it's growing!

Magnum said...

This infographic is on one hand very optimistic (seriously, 4 billion people connected to the web until 2020 looks marvellous) and on the other - well... it's worrying. I can't put my finger directly on the case here, but some data get me worried 'without evident reason' - even the info regarding laptops outnumbering PCs. What can I say, Skynet is somewhere in the distant horizon.

I can't wait when the portable jet packs comes out.

Murdernickel said...

It's amazing to see how fast things change

M Fawful said...

I agree with Magnum, we really need to know more about what is being done with our data.

Resdizeix said...
