Industrialization as the Catalyst for the Digital World - Industrialization as the Catalyst for the Digital World The modern digital world, while bearing strong influences from Victorian and Modernist thought, ultimately originates from neither, but is rather a product of advancing technology. Although the diagrammatic ideas of information organization that surfaced in the Victorian age have served, along with Modernist imagery, to lend a definite structure to the digital world, these ideas were not the catalysts for new developments in technology.
