The World is Flat

I read The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman a while ago. In it he describes how technology and supply chain improvements are changing the world.

Here’s my example.

Today it has been shipped. From Shenzhen in China:

FedEx and Apple delivering my iPod within days. Now that would not have happened ten years ago.
