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.

With all these modern advancements, one thing is absolute—our society is deep within the digital revolution.
