“1337 to.x: A Revolutionary Translation” by Dr. Zivorad is a quick and easy read on the history of technology and its impact on the business world today. Dr. Zivorad is one of the leading intellectuals on this topic. I always enjoy his books, especially when he writes in an engaging style. This book is no exception. There are many interesting ideas and practical applications in this one.
The current fear and hatred of computers
In the introduction, Dr. Zivorad touches on the current fear and hatred of computers. Fear in the form of hacker attacks and viruses, the need for secure networks, the value of trust in large institutions such as banks, governments, corporations, etc., and even the impact on business, are all considered. The reasons for these fears are given, as well as some common misconceptions. It is quite interesting to see how technology has actually increased productivity rather than decreasing it over the years.
Zivorad then goes into the history and meaning of the letters X, Y, and Z at the start of the computer age. It is interesting to see where computers came from in this reading. One thing that is apparent is the desire for more computer processing power. This led to the development of the calculator and the keyboard. The designers of the computer wanted something that was more powerful, yet more intuitive for the end-user.
The development of the ATM machine is also discussed. This machine would go right here allow the end-user to withdraw money or pay bills. What a concept! The end-user could now do their banking online! Would you like to try this concept? It was a great idea!
A new kind of paper used, which allowed the writer to create pictures instead of just writing, was created. These pictures would be displayed on the machine. This would enable the person to select what they wanted to draw. It was an amazing time! This form of art may have been invented way before the invention of the printing press.
The computer arrived on the scene with its personal computer
The computer arrived on the scene with its personal computer. It quickly replaced the typewriter. The typewriter was being used as a waste product because it took so long to type a word. Now a word could be typed and viewed instantly.
Computers are so advanced today that they can handle almost anything that you want them to. Before this time, a person needed a great deal of programming knowledge to create a website. They would either need to hire someone or learn the language and code it themselves. Today, it is very simple.
Computers are awesome! They are machines with the ability to take control over our lives. They can help us connect with others, teach us things we never thought we could teach ourselves, and open up countless horizons.
The Internet has made this all possible.
We now know that the Internet is a wonderful tool for education and research. There are libraries of information at our fingertips. All we need is a computer and a connection to the internet. This is where the power of the Internet would lie.
Before the Internet, everything was controlled by people. They would sit down in a room and create the plans for the future, the rules, and the technology that would allow the machine to run smoothly. Today, we use computers to plan, create, and purchase all of this. A computer makes our lives much easier.
The internet was created as a way to allow individuals all over the world to share ideas, information, and thoughts. Without the Internet, we would still be locked in the dark ages. The Internet is the key to the future. We should seize the opportunities that are available.
If you think this is too grand a claim, just look at history. The internet was born out of the struggles of man. It’s here to stay. And, it will lead us to greatness.
