Network Society

It is an undeniable fact that the emergence of network society has been one of the central themes in 21st century since the society is now living in an information age. As Austrian-born American physicist Fritjof Capra states “the network is a pattern that is common to all life. Wherever we see life, we see networks” (Capra:2002) Below, I would like to share a chart explaining the development of the information age and network society, which just describes the fact that the more the factors such as nature, land, capital and knowledge increase in time, the more the size of the information societies. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is exactly good or bad. It is good that we have such technology and network today we can even talk with someone whenever we want and anywhere he is in the world through certain networks; but is also bad that we have once started to lose traditional or conventional values of ours from the past, such as writing a letter and sending presents in it. So, what do you think about that?
