In the world we live in today, technology has become one of the most important factors. Technology is one of today's needs, as this can make different things or activities necessary for the human being (Wayman, Stringfield, 2006). Thus in this paper I am going to discuss some basic but significant concepts related to technology.
Question no. 1
The new technologies have an impact on the methods and strategies of companies. For Net guru Don Tapscott, they upset them altogether. Tapscott summarizes the principles of Wikinomics in four points: open (being open), lateral cooperation (peering), sharing, and act globally (acting globally).

I think a lot about the effects of technology in our material life, but it is high time to pay attention to the effects of these new technologies in our personal lives (Sherry, 2010).
