The Importance of High-Tech and Internet Know-How

The world around us is changing rapidly at a faster pace. High technology advances and the Internet seem to be the center of attraction of today that drives us towards globalization. Millions of people from different corners of the world adore slick high-tech gadgets and spend much of their time on the internet. In a nutshell, the main reason people will be obsolete in tomorrow's world is because we have spent years and learned nothing about the basic use of some of these high-tech gadgets and the Internet.

Over the past decade, businesses, universities, and organizations around the world have invested heavily in the acquisition of high-tech gadgets and equipment, adding everything from desktop computers, devices, security monitoring, Blu-ray DVD and laptop connections. Most have also taken their business online, it's no wonder why the internet business world is always flooded every day.

In his book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki said: "The earth was a wealth of 300 years ago So the person who owned the land owned the wealth Then, it was factories and production, and America rose domain of industrial ... wealth. Nowadays, it is information. And the person who has the most timely information owns the wealth. "But if I may ask," Where else can you get the timeliest information even from the most the strange world? 'on the Internet, of course. Internet is a place where information flies around the world at the speed of light, and has become the mainstream of global information. majority of people today are turning to the Internet to first whenever they try to find key information. From my personal opinion, students who have the privilege to get on the internet have a distinct advantage over students who are less fortunate.

Many young people today, especially in developing countries, have never had a course on how to use a computer, or any of the current high-tech gadgets, much less understand how to use the internet. But I do not know that without computer literacy and a little 'knowledge of the Internet, may not be ready to face the world that awaits them - a world where timely information is wealth.

I do not expect people to agree with me because the knowledge and the use of high-tech equipment and the Internet is always an emotional topic. Critics say that could really make our young passive. Most of our children are using the Internet to watch pornographic films. Some of our young people and adults involved in online business illegitimate and illegal (often called yahoo-yahoo in Nigeria). But with proper guidance and strict measures by the government, our parents, our teachers, and this act can be drastically reduced, if not eliminated. Why look at the other side of the coin, the Internet has far greater benefits and performance in today's changing world.

There are several resources on the Internet where you can get detailed information and concrete ideas on key issues and subjects that may improve learning. There are many legal and legitimate online businesses, some of which cost little or no capital to start. The internet is now one of the main means of reducing unemployment and restlessness of youth, globally. In addition, the Internet is a social media. You can do a lot of true friends and pleasing to different corners of the world, right from the comfort of your home.

The technology has a place in today's world. And, the Internet has united the world. Instead of one mind with the internet, there are billions of minds linked together, sharing ideas, solve global problems, the creation of business partnerships, and communicate globally.

Today, we are facing global and technological progress as large as or even higher than those ever faced before. In our age of Facebook and Twitter, and could soon be Google Wave, this digital soft power will soon be used by nations to promote and advance the interests of foreigners. I rest my case, but I like to read your feedback.
