Technology is a part of our society now. It’s a part of the world now. And as it stands, there’s practically no way to get by anywhere without knowledge of technology. The truth of the matter, though, is that if you’re involved in the industry in any way then you owe it to yourself to stay up to date on the newest developments.
The increasing relevance of technology to culture necessitates it. Everyone these days is getting into some kind of tech – whether it be smart phones or gaming consoles that do all kinds of different functions, it’s here to stay. It is rapidly becoming a part of everyone’s lives.
Particularly if you work in a field that is related to technology, it is good to be up to date on the latest ideas that are at work. Especially if they are going to become relevant to your company or to your particular tasks.
Say for instance that there’s a new social media platform the boss expects you to use. If you don’t even know what social media is, you’re going to be in for some nasty weather at the office.
It’s just a good idea.
