Young people growing up today don't know a life without social media, smartphones, and other internet-driven technology. However, it wasn't that long ago that computers were still the size of an entire room. As it became easier and cheaper to quickly share information through computer technology, an Information Revolution began taking place. As readers explore this revolution through accessible main text, informative sidebars, and annotated quotes, they discover the people and inventions that created the digital world they know today. Historical and contemporary images give readers a deeper sense of how the ideas of the past have shaped their present.
