Focus on who Facilitated the Elements of Infrastructure
Technology and infrastructure are entities that go together; in all aspects. According to Shaffer and Burke, civil, social and institutional hierarchies should facilitate the transformation of these very pivotal elements. As it is, these institutions are more endowed as would be individuals. This should, therefore, make the process a lot swifter and faster.
What Actually Permits an Innovative Concept to become integrated into a Common Infrastructure?
Innovative concepts have been the focus of most groups; encouraging individuals to come up with inventions as much as is humanely possible. Before an innovative concept is assimilated into a system, there are a couple of steps that have to be made. First, it has to be proven beyond reasonable doubt that the invention is something that has not been around and, that also, it will assist society in one way or the other. This then goes through to the set watchdogs for further scrutiny. The innovation is then integrated into a common infrastructure through the issue of a patent.
Examples of Innovation
Who and / or what has Facilitated an Infrastructure that Represents a Technological Transformation
Technological transformation has been brought about by inventions that have been made by individuals here and there. According to the authors, they deserve all the respect for the transformation that has been experienced from the beginning.
Role of Religious Corporate Institutions in Technological Transformation
According to both authors, religion and logic cannot operate together. Essentially, religious corporate institutions played a limited role in the revolution. As such, they both have little to be grateful of.
Role of Merchant Traders in Technological Transformation
Merchant traders, according to both authors, contributed a lot to the transformation. They are not only the ones who provided the most market for new products; they also made the others aware of the changes taking place.
The Black Death and its Significant Effect upon Technological Transformation and Infrastructure
The Black Death was a dark period in the history of the world since it resulted to the death of thousands of people. Conversely, it made people realise just how much they needed change especially where disaster management was concerned.
