WaveDescription Agricultural Wave 1800 bc-1750 Land ownership equated to power and position and was the basis of politics and economics (Toffler, 1980). As a result of the ending of the stone age people began to clear land and plant agriculture which allowed them to be more self sufficient and less reliant on hunting game often uncatchable. This brought on agricultural technology and humans began to live in settlements as opposed to travelling abound. A simple time in life where working together and family values were paramount. Industrial Wave 1750-1950 Bartering and exchange was the new platform and the agriculture phase began to phase out. Humans broadened out constructing more buildings of grand scale and railroads were most important (Toffler, 1980). The industrial wave called for great changes and advancement in technology that brought about mass production. During this time period the nation experienced turbulent times such as the great depression however all part of the explosion of the coming wave/s. Teamwork was necessary to complete large tasks and objectives which include the mass production of goods and services nation and worldwide. Immigrant workers travelled to the United States looking for work and roots were established for generations to come. Information Wave 1970-present Otherwise known as the media age humans are now reliant and crave information with technology as being the catalyst (Toffler, 1980). The information wave is our current platform; currently experiencing tremendous growth and refining of technologies. How we learn and obtain information has changed drastically and standard forms of book research are slowly withering. Computers continue to evolve themselves having gone from main frame systems early on to stand alone PC’s and cell phones that can complete a myriad of self-service actions. Communication Wave Pending Becoming more reliant if not completely in need of automation and electronics to conduct all kinds of business as well as communicate with one another. We embrace new forms of technology that allows us to communicate worldwide via the use of advanced cellular phones, PDA’s, tablets, and home station computer systems. The dangerous affects of the communication wave with integrated overuse of technology pushes us away from effective ability to communicate face to face; the pending doom and downside to our over reliance of automation. Inability to protect cyber social reliance and information stored on servers could cost the world in a big way. Subject to hacking and security breeches no information is really all that safe and resilient against infiltration.
