What is this thing?

Introduction

It is difficult to define a revolution while in the midst of it. It is even harder to shape it. In terms of the technological revolution, do we live in the post-industrial age, the knowledge age, the information age, Toffler’s (1980) ‘Third wave’, or some other thing? Further complicating this is the determining what the ‘we’ refers to. As Edgerton (2007) has pointed out, the developed world might be in this new age, but the developing world is still in the industrial age.
