Nicholas Carr argues in his article, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” that the internet is changing the way we think and work for the worst. Many people disagree with this argument, and I think the internet is changing us, for the better. The internet has become a great resource in terms of education. It has allowed for communicating across the world intercultural experiences that used to be impossible. Lastly the the younger generation has grown up with the internet and is better suited for using it.
During the early Modern era to the present, the printing press has made a dramatic effect on the Western society. During the early modern era, the printing press was a cheap and effective way to spread the word of the Bible to anyone that could read, increase knowledge and provide education to the world. The printing press allowed people to create and copy the Bible so anyone can have access to the Bible. Along with the Bible, more books were created such as textbooks for schools, reading books for education or entertainment, research and more. As time continues on, printing press created different ways to spread information around.
The invention that has caused the most negative impact on our world would have to be religion. There have been very few conflicts that were not started by religion. For instance, the first Crusade was started by a sermon by Pope Urban II. In his sermon, the pope was urging military support for the Byzantine Empire to fend off the migrating Turks. Urban was saying that the war was to guarantee the safety of pilgrims on their pilgrimage to the Holy Land, which Muslims had taken over.
Printed materials are often taken for granted. Without the printing press, we would have no books, newspapers, and magazines. The printing press revolutionized the way that information is shared, recorded, and how quickly information can be shared. The printing press is one of the greatest inventions of all time; it changed how we have evolved over time and it has affected various cultures in many ways. Elizabeth Eisenstein said it best when she stated, “this sort of spectacular innovation, while deserving close study, should not divert attention from much less conspicuous, more ubiquitous changes.”
Reformation was an important consequence of the printing press however, an even better and more important consequence was Exploration. Exploration was clearly the most important consequence of the invention of the printing press. The explorers of Europe have claimed they were the first ones to discover the “New World.” They traveled far looking for a short route to Africa but came across something else, the Caribbean.
Have you ever wondered what the inventions of medieval times were like? How people did things such as grinding grain? Well, now you will know what it was like.

“It can be concluded that, there are many great inventions, every one of them important for its time. The internet is the best invention, even with its flaws, is the most important invention of our modern time” As told by Italki The internet is the most important invention ever (contrasting ideas, linking expressions) There were other inventions that shaped our world today.

According to Gordon, by the beginning of the sixteenth century, there were two significant technological developments that forever altered human history and made the New World a possibility. The two developments being the printing press (which would bring down the Church 's monopoly) and the full-rigged ship (which made long ocean voyages possible, opening the door to discovery). 3. Two inventions, according to Gordon, helped in the development of the New World. One sourcing from Italy during the fifteenth century; double-entry bookkeeping.
A man who is best recognized as the prime minister of England during World War II, a man who was an accomplished historian, having published dozens of volumes on the history of England and Europe. A man who was also known as a master of oratory and rewarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953 was Winston Churchill. World War II, a conflict that involved every part of the world during the years of 1939-45 was started in September 1, 1939. It was arguably the most significant time of 20th century. It developed technology and laid the ground work that permitted post-war social changes including the end of European colonialism, civil rights movement in United States, modern women’s rights movement and, as well as the exploring programs to outer
People became more understanding of one another’s culture. More books of a secular nature were printed and scientists working on the same problem in different parts of Europe especially benefited, since they could print the results of their work and share it accurately with a large number of other scientists. By the 1600 's, this process would lead to the Scientific Revolution of the Enlightenment, which would radically alter how Europeans viewed the world and universe. While the printing press was a highly positive invention, it created so negativity. It took book copying out of the hands of the Church and made it much harder for the Church to control or censor what was being written.
It is said that the greatest invention of all time is the printing press, and not many can argue against that. The first printing press has made a path to the printing press made in the 1800’s to more modern copying machines that we use everyday. We owe all of these newer printing machines to the man who made the most famous version of the greatest invention of all time, Johannes Gutenberg. The creator of the printing press, Johannes Gensfleisch zur Laden zum Gutenberg, was born in Mainz, Germany, circa 1395.
Throughout history there has been many events that changed a tremendous amount on how we live our lives today. Some of these events are the holocaust, the reign of stalin, and the base of modern medicine is Egypt. But which one is the most important. I would say It is the the French revolution. It not because of the number of people that died, it is because of how much this event change society and the world we live in today.
The printing press helped make the world become as it is today. Our technology may be more advanced but the printing press gave knowledge.
