Matt Blumberg points to an interesting chart - a significant one at that - literally talking about life changing impact of technologies and their adoption. Mankind has been adopting new technologies faster and faster over the last century. The surprising element is the faster adoption of the new age technologies. The chart, from a report issued by the Dallas branch of the Federal Reserve, shows the U.S. household penetration of new technologies on the vertical axis and years from date of introduction on the horizontal axis.The adoption of internet and the mobile phone may record to be the fastest adoption by mankind of any new technology. I guess that these two may also score to be the most quickly embraced technology in big numbers globally across rich and poor nations. Pointer of things to come in the flat world?
