Today, life is not what it used to be. Things were a lot simpler back then, and we had fewer distractions in our everyday life. Far gone is the world in which we have to worry about when the next crop will come in (mostly) or where we will find our shelter (for most). Now we are inundated with information and have access to information in droves.

What this means for how we live is something pretty amazing. One such thing is the lack of leaving things unknown. Many people have covered this topic from scholars to comedians. The Internet has allowed us to look anything up at the touch of a button, so in a sense there is no more mystery when there used to be.

Truly astonishing

Is that the information age has not only changed how we conduct our lives, but it has also extended far beyond what we could have imagined. Not knowing everything at the exact time that we wanted was something that didn’t necessarily hold us back, but having this information at hand has sort of made us a better informed populous.

It is difficult to hide anything these days, which has led to corporations and other entities being more transparent. The age in which we live is one where information is not only at a premium, but is widely available to anyone that has the means with which to access it. There is no doubt that the world we live in is faster than ever and that we are at the forefront.
