Over time technologies change to enhance the availability of a product or service. Industries conform to society in much the same way people conform to industry. Through the examination of various areas of industry it becomes easy to ascertain the patterns as they have existed through the ages. Since this, the current society, is not the first of its kind there are some things that can be predicted for and are not surprises.
For one the travel industry has changed throughout recorded history. It all started with regular ambulation and progressed to carts on wheels and minuscule boats. Today the biggest means of travel is the automobile and the plane. Using such apparatuses it's possible to travel across the states and nations in record time. Necessity breeds invention. This is what changes the face of history; therefore, time is the eternal gift that practically guarantees that the reflection of the world will be different and perhaps better.
An advancement in the working world, due to mobile and other devices, is the practice of telecommuting. Using the phone or internet programs like Skype you can keep in touch with co-workers and employers when away from the office. These new and essential methods to stay in touch were not thought about perhaps a century ago, but they are now a way of life. It's virtually impossible to live now without devices that allow for telecommuting and maintaining relationships with others across long distances.
At the time the stock market initially opened there were no innovators who would have imagined that the act of trading, buying and selling, would be available through a tool known as the internet. With innovation there is the instrument to make great strides in any field. This could mean sports, music, and education. All areas are critical as long as there is a need there will be an idea, theory, and invention to fill it. This is the promise of a severely progressive society that values creativity and commitment.
