This paper looks at the impact of computer based technologies. The writer discusses that during the beginnings of the Internet in the 1990s, many believed that there would be a great positive transformation in human existence from a social, economic and political point of view that would be brought about by computer-based technologies such as the Internet. The writer of this article concludes that such a positive transformation due to the new computer technology did not materialize.
From the Paper:"In the 1990s, during the formative years of the Internet, there was a widespread belief in Western culture that computer-based technologies such as the Internet would positively transform human existence - in social, political and economic areas - on a global scale. However, in the middle of the first decade of the 21st century it is now apparent that this belief in the positive transformative power of new technologies was premature at best, and fatally flawed at worst."
