After reading chapter 1, I see how far we have come in our communication. What used to seem impossible is now a reality. We used to write letters to communitcate, and they would take days, maybe even weeks to get places. Now, we can send texts or email people, and they'll have it almost instantly. Communication has slowly progressed and taken over. Today, we can't live with out it.
We have become completely submerged in social websites and texting. We don't know how to live without that instant gratification of information. No one nowadays writes letters or talks on the phone, because they know that they can just send a text message or email to a person instead.
Our communication has grown and with it we have grown. We now are able to communicate with people all over the world, and, because of this, we know more about what's going in the world. We can see now, through communication, that the world is a huge place, and every one of those places are different and unique.
