Forms of Electricity

Electricity has enabled us to progress as a society at a rapid pace. It's enabled artificial lighting, transportation and many other things. One of the biggest advancements, in my opinion, has been the computer which has changed the way we communicate and process information. Cell phones, tablets, computers, WIFI, LTE, the internet has given us unprecedented access to information whenever and almost where ever in the industrialized world, be it used in a productive way or in a destructive fashion. This system has been used to promote human rights activism through such websites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blogs, most notably by Asmaa Mahfouz during the Arab Spring uprisings of Egypt. The internet, portable computer technologies and wireless data communications has a tremendous power in society with the speed of the distribution of information to a great number of people.
