You have to grow in order to blossom

flower of computing Image: The Evolution of computing

The site linked above, the Evolution of Computing, has so many useful diagrams and tables to help you put technology and ICT into perspective. It really is multidisciplinary and fosters multidisciplinary thought and action. We have been growing computer systems and they have now changed from user based to community driven systems and they determine our world view. You need to have an awareness of how technology drives our world view so that you can better use it. According to the site:

A world view is:

Essential. To view a world one needs a view perspective.
Empirical. It arises from interaction with the world.
Complete. It consistently describes a whole world.
Subjective. We choose a view perspective, explicitly or not.
Exclusive. You cannot view the world in two different ways at the same time, as you cannot sit in two places at once (footnote 10).
Emergent. One world view can emerge from another.

Software and hardware can play a part in determining our world view. It is important, then, that you can use technology and see how it is empowering or limiting thinking. A multidisciplinary approach ensures that thinking remains as broad as it can be and a multilingual approach ensures you are engaging as many individuals who all can contribute ideas and thinking to the system. Across the whole flower of computing are pluralingualism and intercultural understanding and richness. If you read ( or even just look at the pictures) the article about top start ups on the Techcrunch site you will see the top start ups are multilingual. The world is changing.
