Abstract

The words “informatics” and “computer” are today part of people’s vocabulary, especially for the younger generation, along the most-used words. Further on, we are so accustomed to using a phone, eventually even a mobile device which allows us to communicate everywhere in the world and with anyone we desire almost instantaneously, we then flip through the television channels from the comfort of our armchairs using a remote control and many, many others. Today’s world has become dependent on computers, a fact which was unimaginable years ago. The Internet phenomenon has a fantastic social, economic, and perhaps even cultural impact in the world we live in that is not to be understated. Let us thing about how much the communication distance between people has been reduced by the internet, as compared to the time it took for a letter to travel to a destination carrying a message. What wonderful transformations flow from this from a human perspective, which we might not even register at this moment! Everything happens naturally, like these things were here since the dawn of time.
