Technology has had a very disruptive effect on the book publishing and retailing industries, but has it also given the book a new lease of life. Technological change is widely recognized as the main driver of long-run economic growth (Solow ) and of development in general (Freeman & Perez ).

Contrasting. The study of technical change takes it for granted that there is a factor affecting the technology and that this factor is given exogenously to the economic system. The fact remains, however, that practically all types of technical change are determined within the economic system as the result of meaningful rational economic behavior of.

It depends not only on the work of scientists and engineers, but also on a wider range of economic and societal factors, including institutions such as intellectual property.

Discussion on the use of digital technology in the context of nature conservation (hereafter conservation) in its broadest sense is less developed (Arts et al.

Those academic studies that have begun to consider the use of digital technology in conservation have cited factors such as cost (Graham et by: Technological change has been pervasive in the electricity industry, and this has had persistent impact on the structure of utilities and the cost of energy for homes and vehicles.

Historically, technological change has been the catalyst for change. In fact, the technology can be regarded as primary source in economic development and the various technological changes contribute significantly in the development of underdeveloped countries.

We therefore suggest that approaches to digital technology in nature conservation need to change to avoid treating technology as a magic wand to solve conservation problems at a stroke.

A more constructive approach to digital technology would be to consider it as a force (Castells ). Such a force can perhaps be guided and steered Cited by:
