Shift Happens: Essays on Technology

Publisher Description

Shift Happens is a collection of essays that chronicle the introduction and spread of technologies that have shifted and reshaped our lives during the past century.

With examples principally from North America, the authors review the impact of new technologies from the perspective of two individuals who have lived during this time of immense change.

Starting with the introduction of electricity and the rise of radio and TV, the book moves on to personal computers, the Internet, World Wide Web, streaming audio and video, artificial intelligence, and quantum computing.

The authors, Gene and Marion Wilburn, are retired information specialists whose careers included managing IT projects, and establishing websites for their institutions. Both authors have written extensively and taught courses on information technology. *Shift Happens* reflects their personal experiences with the technologies of our era.
