When someone says that the world is shrinking, does that mean that the world is growing smaller and smaller everyday? The answer is no. The concept of the shrinking world actually has to do with how much technology has impacted the world we live in today. Two hundred years ago, everyone had to walk to the destination they wished to go or travel by stage coach; no one could travel very far, which made the world seem so big. In today’s world, if someone wanted to travel anywhere in the world, they can simply fly in an airplane. In a number of hours, you have arrived at the destination you are trying to reach. Also, since people take their phones with them everywhere they go, they have the whole world at their fingertips. Technology is the foundation of our world.
