Guttenberger’s inventing the printing press was far was more impacting than anything Steve Job’s invented. But the digital revolution is for every changing the world as Guttenberger did. the real burst ahead in communication came with Aldus Manutin’s invention of the pocket sized book in 1501 call the octavo format. It revolutionized the spread of the gospel so the common man eventually got hold of a Bible.
Today we have post and pre-digital people. I represent a third. I am pre-digital in my cultural roots and post-digital in my style of living. I am an early adapter of most technology. The only thing that took me awhile to adapt to was texting. I now text more than do emails. As to most post-digital folk.
I had a mobile phone when they first came out in portable enough form to carry around. I found a picture of me using it the other day. It looks like a battle field walky-talky. It was huge. And it had about a one hour battery.
The way culture is moving we will see the digital age expand until everything will be driven by imagination, story and technology. I have a hard time parsing scripture in my kindle but I can do most everything else digitally. Digital is brining people together in blazing speed. I am already putting notes from my messages occasionally on FB when i run out of time.
