Technology takes away the stress of getting to someone’s house to give them the information. In the article, “Meet Your IBrain: How Technology Changing the Way We Think”, state that, “we develop a better ability to sift through large amounts of information rapidly and decide what’s important and what isn’t- our mental filters basically learn how to shift into overdrive” (146).

In my country when you are having a baby naming ceremony, and you want to invite the villages you have to walk to ever one house to invite them for the naming ceremony. Every house is far from the other. Before you get to one person’s house you have to walk for ten minutes. You have no choice but to do it, because you want people to come.

Yesterday, I had the information from an archive website in about 20 minutes, I emailed my notes to my office computer from the car” (3). In other words, Hagan believe that what used to take him hours to send information now just takes less than 20 minutes. All thanks to
