The first time I saw a graphical user interface on a computer (Windows 3.0) I instinctively knew this would change everything for me. But I remember thinking (probably like a lot of other people) ... I can do better. This is good, but not good enough. I've spent the rest of my adult life as part of those computer crazed masses. The hordes of curious tinkerers, who over time... DID make it better. We did make the world a better place. If only by helping to bring people closer together. Turns out, our species is much more powerful as a group. But also - More Dangerous. How Have Computers Changed The World?

Computers have made many things that were originally though to be impossible, now possible. It has even created its own culture as well as helped to connect people from all over the world. Made making information much much easier to obtain

Try and think of something that we use everyday that didn't have something to do with computers in one way or another. That's right, basically nothing. Hell, even our damn dairy products have had some form of contact with computers. In short, I think that without computers, our society would be almost unrecognizable, and certainly a lot more primitive.

They have changed, almost everything. From the way we get to work, or school. To the way our food, to the way we send information. They have changed how we learn things, to the things we see on TV. The list could honestly go on and on. A better question would be: How computers HAVEN'T changed the world.
