Abstract

It is unarguable that new technologies are creating profound changes within society. These technologies are becoming so integral to our lives and cultures that we might often fail to notice the changes that they have brought. One way of reflecting on the changes that have occurred is to conduct a thought experiment in which we try to see the world through the eye of someone from the relatively recent past.
