Everyday in society people are making improvements. Today we are using cutting edge technology to improve every aspect of

our daily lives and in business professions. For instance in today's society the fields of Communication are constantly advancing and

more and more new ways to communicate are being invented.

Technology has helped increase the speed of communication and decrease its cost. However, at the same time it has caused people

to become more impersonal with each other. In earlier times the major form of communication was for people to visit each other and go

to public meeting places. One of the next major advances was the telephone. Due to the telephone people no longer went to the public

meeting places as often as they used to. As time goes on, new advances still allow people to contact and communicate with each

other more easily. These advances such as faxes, beepers, and email, although seemingly making life easier, each help to

decrease the earlier forms of communication.

In some businesses email is the main way of communication because its quick, they have record of the conversation, and

can almost access it anywhere.

People very often debate whether technology is good or bad. Many people believe that technology can only cause harm to their lives

and society, while many others strongly defend the technologies which have made their lives much more leisurely and enriching than

it could have been several hundred years ago. In my opinion, both of these views are correct to an extent, but I also believe that what

should be examined is not whether technology in its self is good or bad, but rather how we as humans use it.
