The Evolving Intersection of Technology and Business

Business has always depended on technology and innovation. Jobs, throughout history, have consistently changed, been destroyed, and been created due to the demands new technological advances have brought adapting civilizations. Starting with progress in the field of information technology and the invention of computers and the World Wide Web, the world of business has had to evolve rapidly - and at an incredibly fast rate with each new invention or breakthrough.


See, in the 1900’s, a boom of inventive businesspeople manufactured and engineered innovations to all different corners of the Western marketplace. As an article from Bookfresh.com once put it, things like the camera and the typewriter and the telephone made way for where we are today. Think about it: Alexander Graham Bell probably didn’t imagine we’d have cellular phones in the 1990’s, and he certainly didn’t couldn’t have comprehended the idea of internet. However, nowadays businesses dedicate entire segments of their work to mobile marketing, which uses both cellular phones and the internet.


On some level, we don’t even have to send physical mail or meet up in person to do business. The USPS is still valuable to our society, don’t get me wrong! But you can put an advertisement in someone’s site for practically free now - there isn’t necessarily a need to pay for a newspaper ad when you can promote or market through social media or e-mail (more on that here).


It’s odd to think that in the span of a couple lifetimes, we’ve gone from worrying about wasting resources like paper to worrying more about wasting energy. This latter is still incredibly important and relevant, of course. But there’s just as many if not more in-company campaigns and policy changes to worry about in terms of managing costs for electricity use. The more we change, the more we have to adapt - and business, over the last one hundred years even, has adapted an incredible amount. Will it continue into the future? I don’t think there’s any way we could stop it if we even wanted to.
