In the summer of 1984, almost two billion television viewer were able to watch the Summer Olympics from

Los Angeles, Live via satellite, While telecommunication satellite beamed the Olympics around the world, most viewers watched the events without stopping to think about how this form of instant communication works, or how it may affect their lives now and in the future in both positive and negative ways. The advantages of telecommunications systems for the rapid and efficient transmission of information to and from the home around the world have been described by communications experts. They see the development of these systems as a first step toward eliminating political and geographic boundaries by making every kind of human knowledge available to all. However, the possible disadvantages of this new technology have usually been ignored. Telecommunication can make information from around the world available to use quickly and easily, but some people worry that this may be a risk to our privacy. If personal information is stored in computers, then it may be easily transmitted via satellite to anyone who can pay for the service. Other futurists worry that telecommunications systems may isolate people from each other. They say that when people are able to shop from their homes, do their banking without leaving their house, watch movies they want on their television, as well as get information they need, then there will not be as much contact between people. The isolation may have a very destructive effect on social relations. It is important to realize that the same technology that helps us may harm us. We can prevent this from happening by monitoring the new technology. As one communication expert says, we must remember that technology alone is not the answer. It is the intelligent application of technology that will lead us to success.
