Technology has been a primary driver of social change for thousands of years. In particular, four technological innovations were responsible for social revolutions: The domestication of plants and animals over ten thousand years ago, the invention of the plow, the invention of the steam engine, and the invention of the computer all led to massive social change (Henslin 390). The transition from hunting and gathering to a pastoral society changed earlier societies by enabling them to abandon migratory practices and establish fixed residences.

How John Kay came up with this creation is because when he was a kid, he worked in his fathers wool manufacturing mills, and soon became the manager for one of these mills. In May 1733, the Flying Shuttle was patented for use (The “Flying Shuttle” 2). Angered by the new competition, weavers wrecked Kay’s house, and destroyed his weaving machines, also known as a “Loom.” Costs of operating this new machine halved labor costs so this brought in great curiosity from other industries as well. People were quick to adopt Kay’s new invention (The “ Flying Shuttle” 2). This

Thus, Nelson proposes his alternative to such systems with the creation of “responding resources”. He emphasizes the creation of “branching or performing presentations which respond to user actions”. He would define this as hypermedia, which have not yet been achieved in its totality by the invention of the World Wide Web.

Social Media and Its Impacts on Society
One of the biggest invention in the world is social media. A tool that changed our society and the way we communicate with others. The aspects of social media both have a positive and negative impact on life. Websites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter has made it easier for people to communicate with other people all over the world. However, this type of technology might be doing more harm than good. The downfall of social media is that it prevents people to have a face to face interaction. Without that face to
