According to a survey some time ago, the number of cell phone users in the year 2000 were around one billion. As as of last year, this percentage has increased fivefold, and this tremendous increase in users is mainly recorded in the underdeveloped countries. There was this time when only some members of the elite class had access to this luxury. Now every other kid has a cell phone. From a thirteen year old to a ninety year old, life is unimaginable without a cell- or smart-phone.
Mobile phone companies are benefiting hugely from this sudden boom in business. This upswing of cell phones has led the poor countries to generate revenue. It has made their lives faster and easier, making businesses more successful and more efficient.
But where will it all go?
That’s what I’m wondering lately.
Will computers and automated communication ultimately make human life redundant?
It may sound strange, but over time, I believe it will.
And although we will still be here, I have no idea what we will we be doing.
The world is progressing at an unbelievable rate, yet the health issues of a third of the world’s population remain un-addressed. About 85% of the world’s population does not have access to a proper functioning toilet. Water borne diseases are spreading like wild fire. According to a report, every year more children die of diarrhoea than of AIDS.
The lack of toilets is more prominent in rural areas than urban areas, yet they affect all of them likewise. Poor sanitation is a cause that people are suffering from diseases which were unheard of decades ago. This is a crisis, faced by every country, but the governments are turning a blind eye to them despite the fact that these diseases are the major cause behind the hospitals being over crowded.
Access to proper sanitary conditions is a basic right of every human being no matter rich or poor. The third world countries are suffering the most, there is no concept of toilets in the villages whatsoever, causing poor health conditions.
Those of us who have access to a proper toilet will be disgusted by the sight of people excreting waste in open. This unattended waste does more harm than a drone attack would.
All we know is that we are witnessing more each day when it comes to online communications. And we might have thought once that communicating via the World Wide Web was only reserved to emails… until various web-based communication platforms, such as social media sites and online conferencing came to life.
Looking at how fast change has been for online-based communications, we could only brace ourselves for more. At least no matter what, we know that it is going to be handy and convenient.
