Technology of Modern Era

T he world became a smaller place at the turn of the 20th century, and as nations emerged as modern globalized societies people faced enormous changes politically, socially, and scientifically. 

More concretely, while employees used to be able to leave their work at the office and wind down upon getting home, now the line between labor and leisure has blurred to the point where we sometimes feel compelled to work from our phones and laptops simply because we can. It is common to see commuters typing up reports, updating

spreadsheets, and answering work-related emails on the train. In fact, at some companies there

is an implicit expectation to be on-call at all times, or else risk losing a competitive edge among

colleagues.
