Abstract

Information exchange prior to the 15th century was by word of mouth. That changed when Johannes Gutenberg invented movable type and revolutionized the distribution of information. With a printing press, anyone could share and distribute knowledge, wisdom, religious ideology, or literary works. The control of information was no longer in the hands of the political or religious elite as movable type printing became the first mass broadcast medium. Fast forward to the late 20th century when the personal computer was invented and later embraced in the home and office. Soon, connectivity evolved through Internet technology, later expanding via mobile and Cloud technologies. With all these modern advancements, one thing is absolute—our society is deep within the digital revolution.
