How Technology Has Changed Our Lives

Abe Rahey discusses the ways technology has changed us

By Abe RaheyPublished about a year ago 3 min read

It’s hard to believe that just a few decades ago, there were no cell phones, no internet, and no way to communicate with people all over the world instantaneously. Technology has come a long way in a relatively short amount of time, and it has changed our lives for the better in many ways. This blog post will discuss three ways that technology has made our lives easier and more productive.

1) Communication

One of the most obvious ways technology has changed our lives is through communication. With the advent of cell phones, the internet, and social media, we can now communicate with people all over the world instantaneously. This has made it easier for us to stay in touch with friends and family, connect with new people, and exchange information quickly and easily.

Additionally, the internet has allowed us to access information at our fingertips. We can now find out virtually anything we want to know in a matter of seconds, which has made us more knowledgeable and informed about the world around us.

2) Education

Technology has also made a huge impact on education. With the advent of online learning, students can now learn from anywhere in the world and at any time they want. This has allowed more people to get access to higher education, and it has also allowed people to continue their education even after they have graduated from college.

Additionally, technology has made it easier for teachers to educate students. Teachers can now use multimedia tools and interactive exercises to help students learn more effectively. Additionally, they can track students’ progress and provide feedback quickly and easily.

3) Work

Technology has also changed the way we work. With the advent of computers and the internet, people can now work from anywhere in the world. This has allowed more people to work remotely, which has resulted in increased flexibility and productivity. Additionally, technology has made it easier for us to do research and track data quickly and easily. This has allowed us to become more efficient in our work and get more done in a shorter amount of time.

Technology has also made it easier for us to stay organized. We can now store all of our data in one place, and we can access it from any device, anywhere in the world. Additionally, technology has given us new ways to communicate with our colleagues, which has made us more efficient and effective in our work.

Technology has made an enormous impact on our lives. It has allowed us to communicate more easily, learn more effectively, and work more efficiently. We would be lost without it.

About Abe Rahey

Technology has always played a big part of Abe Rahey's life. As a teenager, Abe quickly learned that the video games he played with his friends would open a door to a more in-depth role-- not as a player, but as a developer. Even though Abe didn't have knowledge of any programming languages, he wrote down ideas for game after game using natural language until he had the ability to learn code.

When first learning to code, Abe quickly picked up the procedural languages of Java, BASIC, and C, and it quickly snowballed into Abe creating his own games and even running his own server. Before he had even graduated from high school, the 3D Portal Network that Abe had created had been purchased by GameSpy, a browsing platform that is incredibly popular today. Abe worked with the company in a management position for almost a decade, helping them transition to IGN Entertainment and then Fox Interactive.

After high school, Abe Rahey received his Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Arizona. His experience in the jobs that he held after college attracted Google's attention, leading him to move from Phoenix, Arizona, to Mountain View, California to take up the role of Senior Director of Engineering. He's held the position for over 14 years. Throughout his tenure at Google, he gained experience in a number of different things, such as Product and Enterprise Infrastructure. He prides himself on being a fair, logical, and diplomatic leader. To learn more about Abe Rahey, be sure to visit his websites!
