Introduction

Life in the Information Age Information Age is a term that has been used to refer to the present economic period. It refers to the status of the economy in aspects of technology, how many different kinds of computers we have in this century which we didn't have . In this essay I will talk about how everyone lives in this information age and how we have changed everything with the technology and most of population in the UK use it more often. In every house there is something from the latest technologies, computing now is being involved in everything for example in schools, industries and its absolutely essential. The computers and machineries from this period have had a huge impact to the bussinesses and industries, its made everything easier for them and not just in these fields everywhere in the world. In world today we can communicate around the world easily and much more quicker with the help of communication technology we also don't lose the connections.

We can find millions of comments on nearly everything, on every topic which could be used everyday. Ict plays a big role in mostly everything we do : Communication- People communicate in various different ways but communicating in ICT is one of the best ways to communicate, its easier, it takes less effort and more reliable too. Many millions of people who use computers prefer e-mailing, chatting or messaging rather than anything else. Its also quicker and you can do all different sorts of stuff with communication for e.g. sending a document with the email or even when chatting online for e.g. by using MSN messenger, it could be pictures, video etc any kind of file and you can rely on it that it will reach wherever you want it. Employment opprtunities- ICT is quite essential in employment because if the worker is good at ICT they could get more approaches or better salaries.

Conclusion

There are many websites which encourage websites which are more controversial or harmful to others. Although there are some limited powers which stop sites like these too be created but still some of them some how slip through. Crimes like paedophilia is also ocurring in some places through some websites with inapropriate material. ICT could be blamed for this although this information age has created many oppurtunities for us and theres a growth in ICT. So these legislations help us keep ourselves safe from the criminals. My conclusions on life in the information age I think the modern technology is what really gets us going. Otherwise we will have to go back the time we didn't have any technology and we had to do all the labour work ourselves. The technology really made my life easier for e.g. the school work wouldve been a lot harder without the internet. Without mobile phones I would communicate as much as I do at the moment. The moments I can catch on the camera to remember would not be possible without the camera there are many other sources which we really do need. As the technology gets more modern its even better although to keep the technology it maybe more expencive. ?? ?? ?? ?? Gokul.B ...read more.
