Change is speeding up

"The historical record shows that the distribution of new technology is speeding up, not slowing down. In the book Myths of Rich and Poor, economist Michael Cox and author Richard Alm note that it took 46 years for one-quarter of the population to get electricity and 35 years for the telephone to get that far. It took only 16 years, however, for one-quarter of American households to get a personal computer, 13 years for a cell phone, and 7 years for Internet access."
