With the amazing developing of print, other inventions began emerging. Thanks to some amazing innovatists, the radio, television, telephone, and now today, the Internet, have all been established. Not only have these inventions altered our personal lives, but have changed the way the job industry has been run for years. However, probably the biggest change these inventions have had in our society ability to earn an education. A college degree is almost a necessity in today’s workforce.
No longer was type just needed for the publication of books and newspapers, but there was now a commercial need for advertisement. The 19th century witnessed an astonishing succession of new technologies, imaginative forms, and new functions for graphic design. It was an inventive and prolific period for new typeface designs, ranging from fanciful and outrageous novelty styles to entirely new categories of type such as Egyptians and sans serif. This is a topic worthy of study because the way in which communicate with the world says a lot about the people doing the communicating. This paper will argue that the industrial revolution allowed for the proliferation of fonts in the 19th century for two main reasons.
Media can be defined as any means through which an idea is emitted, with the hope of inspiring a change, or simply to inform the public. In a generalized sense, the media has been around since Ancient times in writing, art, speeches, and countless other forms. Ancient form of press undoubtedly had an impact on society, but it was not until the mid-19th century that the media began to modernize and took on a new form that would yield even greater power over its audience. This period was a time of unremitting war, social progress, and economic fluctuation. Modern media’s advance during this era was no accident: the significant change and turmoil throughout the country was something that could not be ignored, therefore causing the press to take charge and publicize the issues that were occurring throughout the nation.
Governance in The Digital Age Throughout history, humans have invented things that have changed the way we live our lives. These inventions will gradually impact a larger number of humans until it becomes an integrated part of life. Humans can also invent few things beyond their control. Things like electricity and nuclear power have changed life beyond what mortals can comprehend. Some will argue that such inventions elevate the human race to a new level, and accordingly new dimensions are added to the way we live, that make us wonder how did we live prior to these inventions.
Consider for example, the radio and television. The radio and television (before the advent of the internet) were monumental in their effects on transmitting culture, products, and ideas accross vast distances of the United States. Suddenly American’s could relate to the horrors of war overseas, as well as they could learn of each other’s culture, or product. Of course, this was not the same as being able to transport them there, though newer, better, faster forms of mass transit would be developed to help facilitate just this. But all of these developments pale in comparison to almost a half-century later, with the rise of the internet, and with the increasing array uses for it, in the modern day.
When it comes to technologies that have greatly changed and impacted society what better time to look at than the 20th century. It was a time of great leaps and ingenuity. Some inventions of change that molded the technology of today is the personal computer, the automobile, radio waves, rocketry and the atomic bomb. While they may seem rudimentary by today 's standards, the helped to make advancements and life possible in the 20th century. To begin the personal computer altered human lives and influenced the way we are educated, share knowledge, and entertain.
The Impact of Electronic Media and the Internet on Print Media New technology has developed rapidly since the birth of the internet, and it continues to expand and evolve affecting many domains, especially the print media. This essay will investigate the influence and impact of current technology of the electronic media and World Wide Web on print media, and how future developments in technology will affect the future direction of the traditional newspaper. The way in which “Bloggers” have influenced traditional journalism will also be explored and how this has affected the journalism profession. In addition, the negative impacts of how the electronic media is being used as a political forum will also be investigated. Finally, the author will predict the consequences of future developments in this rapidly growing industry and the implications this may have on the direction of print media.
New media is taking the world by storm, changing the way that people access information – journalists and citizens alike. It is, however, difficult to concretely define as it is continually evolving (Socha & Eber-Schmid, 2012). New media encompasses digital-based content that is readily available at any time. Examples include the Internet, social media networks, blogs, mobile phones and video games (Wikimedia Foundation Inc., 2013). New media has increasingly been used since the mid-1990s to disseminate information, resulting in a media revolution.

In the next 100 years our scientific understanding, technological achievements, and fragmentation of values will progress even further. When future generations look back at who we are as a people how will they define us. Are we the beginning of the end to a powerful nation or the one that sparks the life back into a fading power?
The first two chapters of Retail Nation explore the rise of the retail industry and how department stores came to be known as a national identity for Canadians. Departments stores in Canada emerged late compared to Britain, France and the United States however, they grew quickly, and even surpassed large global retail stores in terms of sales and size. The top three department stores: Eaton's, Simpson's and HBC monopolized Canada's retail market, differentiating themselves from international competitors. They were able to capture the market through innovative ideas such as mail-order catalogues and various branch stores. Retailers promoted consumerism as normal and portrayed Canada as a ‘consumer nation’ (58).
