xxiv) Technologies Impact

Technology's impact has been to "speed things up" so that people want an immediate response - irrespective of accuracy and/or quality of information. This speeding up has been described as "grab and go" and can have a negative impact on work/life balance.

An example of the increasing pace of technological uptake is electricity versus smart phones
"...It took nearly 50 years for electricity use to spread from major cities to urban and rural outpost. Smart phones have reached the same level of usage in just 4 years..."
Duncan Hughes, 2017
