There is a revolution happening around the world today. It started several years ago, and will continue to grow and change and shape the way we view society. This age, known as the information age, will be forever remembered by historians as one of the major shifts in the way humans live on this planet. With the massive growth of the Internet, and the many ways that people can share information, this is a great time to be alive on this wonderful planet.
The most recent key similar move in civilization that had this much impact on people was the development of agriculture. Before the discovery of cultivation, men and women had to hunt for food, and constantly be moving around. If they stayed still in one place, they would quickly die. People lived in bands of fifty individuals or so, and the separation of effort was effortlessly separated between men and women.
Then when farming was invented, people could remain in one place. For several generations. The division of labor became less defined by gender. Women could cultivate just as well as men. And one other thing emerged with the skill to till the land. The ability to amass resources. The more farm land you controlled, the better-off you became. And the wealthier you became the more farmland you could control. This was plainly not possible in the hunter gatherer civilization.
Then in the industrial age, the partition of labor slowly shifted back to the way it was before. Most jobs wanted bodily strength and stamina, and were held, for the most part, by men. Only during major wars did women take on jobs that were by tradition male jobs.
Today, however, that is changing. Information is the currency of trade today. And as more and more individuals are using the Internet to commune, it is becoming a larger and larger foundation stone of everyday business. So much so that people are amassing a significant amount of wealth on the Internet, just like the farmers of the primitive agricultural societies. And on the Internet, anybody can get rich. Man, women, even kids are figuring out how to create money online.
One of the most excellent skills to have today would be Internet selling skills. Even if you never intend to make a full time living online, it would be a decent idea to at least learn the basics, so this latest alteration that will be remembered by human history does not pass you by. And by all means, make sure you shield yourself from spyware and adware. Nothing will keep an Internet business from getting off the ground like those two venomous twins.
