: the Information Age and its wider implications

What is the Information Age?

Internet Business: Profit from the Web
Invention of Machines

The Invention of Machines

  • Mass production of goods.
  • People changed from working the land to working in factories.
  • Many moved to newly formed industrial towns to be near the machines which were their livelihood.
  • Far from offering a better life many lived in tiny houses, working long hours in unpleasant and often dangerous conditions - the dark, satanic mills.
  • Relatively few entrepreneurs (factory owners) prospered.
  • Most "ordinary" people just survived.
  • Paradise lost.
