21 century revolution

Over the last century, there was a graduate, not too obvious, but definate, powerful revolution, which was the invention, application and popularation of the computer system. Wherever you go, from shopping centres to banks, from schools to homes, now they're everywhere. Computers have taken the place of manual work in lots of areas.Whether
you like it or not, embrace it or hate it, they're there.
This reminded me of an incidence about 12 years ago, when I was working in a university library back in China. Everything in the library was then manually operated and organised. A lot of the people that were working in the library were middle aged or older. Then the director of the library had a trip to U.S, and when he came back he brought with him the computer system. Oh, what a riot that was to that poor little library! There was huge work load involved, they had to go through every book to get them ready for scan. It wasn't an easy job and concept for the staff, especially the older aged. But the director was determined. and he turned that library into the first mordern library in the universities in Beijing. He actually got quite famous for that. But very soon after that, the poor director had to resign from his last job. The rejection, mocking and hatred toward him was more than he could handle.
I can see for this century, there's an even more powerful revolution that's going to take place. There's a new trend that's definately happening and growing. It's coming, you can hear the sound now, and it won't be long before you actually see the tidal wave roaring.
It's a new way of shopping habbit: instead of shopping at the big shopping centre, everyone will start to shop at home, shop from their own shops, and make profits while shopping; It's a new way of working: instead of working 70 hours a week, you'll only need to work a couple hours a day and make times more income, instead of working hard, everyone starts to work smart; It's a new way of living: instead of living from paycheck to paycheck, stressed out from Monday to Friday, leave home dark and come back home dark, you'll be able to spend plenty of time with the kids and have vacations whenever you like. There's a new system in the society that's going to replace the traditional style. Whether you like it or not, it's going to take place. You can love it, enjoy it, or resent it, hate it. It won't make much difference. Eventually it's going to take over. At the moment, it's still like 3 o'clock in the morning, most of the people are still asleep. The sooner you wake up, the sooner you plug into it, the earlier you'll benefit from it.
And the cutting edge of this new trend is called "Market Australia".
