Replying to LO13177 --

Ok, here comes my viewpoint... today!

Technology has been changing and evolving so rapidly over the last
few hundred years, it has always been before the human side of things.
When the Fax first came out (new technology), no one took any notice.
As people started using it, the fax has changed how business and
organizations worked. Same with the phone, the internet, television
and digital satellite technology... only the early adapters grasp the
technology when it is first introduced, and when the masses start
using it, then it changes organization.

There is a wave starting, IMO, where the human condition is starting
to evolve and adapt faster than technology can keep up. People are
taking on a 'continuous learning' attitude and stretching the
resources and capability of technology (ie: Internet) and the
technology is straining to keep up and improve fast enough.

This is why a learning organization is a must as we move into the 21st

The limits humans have always placed on ourselves are disappearing,
and we realize we are capable of anything we decide to do.
