It is a brand new world, we salute the pioneers that brought their visionary thoughts into fruition.
Gone are the days when we had to travel long distances across oceans, cities and countries to buy goods and services, that age is now long lost like the dinosaurs, left for historians to discuss in history classes in high schools and universities.
Check your time, truth is, right now, we can now stay within the comfort of our homes and shop for whatever it is that catches our fancy without as much as a phone call or a face-to-face physical meeting.
With the convenience of our electronically digitized planet, we now know more about other continents and places that we are yet to visit, in most cases, we can barely pronounce their names correctly.
All this has been made possible with the inception of a 'Global System of Interconnected Computers' (G.
C), better known as the internet, its' history dates as far back as the 1960s' when the 'United States of America' under the guidance of purposeful leadership thought it wise and necessary to fund an academic/military research project, that will create a means for various military departments and agencies to communicate and exchange information effectively and seamlessly in real time.
Thus, this G.
has really made it very possible for firms, individuals and governments to have their presence felt in an electronically wired planet, that has simply led to the demise of communication, economic and social barriers, such impediments are now seen as relics of a lost civilization, either to be stored in library archives or painted in pictures and exhibited in art galleries/museums.
Just the way one's home address locates us in our nation, a website (which is basically a collection of one or more digital pages on the internet) locates us on this astonishing G.
C, and what we now know as the 'World Wide Web' (W.
) is basically a mamoth collection of inter-linked web sites (W.
Thus in our electronically mutated world any business that has goods, products or services to offer the general public and does not have a W.
is not only unserious but also exhibits a lack of understanding of the times we live in; same applies to governments, academic institutions.
From the fore-going, the prevailing scenario depicted above has now led to a multi-billion dollars industry for people and organizations that possess the technical know-how on how to design W.
However, the good news is that a complete novice can now go into 'Web Site Designing' (W.
D), because currently, an amazing system is available, which allows well trained experts and gurus with in-depth knowledge in W.
to team-up with people that do not know the rudiments, intricacies and technicalities about what W.
S or W.
is all about.
The novice is equipped with the ways and means of soliciting for W.
D jobs from governments, businesses and individuals; once the contract is agreed upon, the experts can now come in, take up the project from the novice, design it to specifications and deliver it on schedule.
Thus the website owner is happy and between the novice and the experts, the profits are shared at a pre-agreed percentage.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth our Lord and personal saviour, whose name is above every other name on earth and in heaven, you're a victor by God's Grace and you will always be victorious in all your endeavours, just believe.
Amen! Peace be with you.
