Interesting firms and their place in today’s world.

Nowadays we have got a lot of various firms, branches are developing. On the one hand they split to a big number of specialized units, on the other some new ones are creating, but some completely vanish.There are a lot of economic branches which are very stabile like mining indrustry, oil extraction or sawmills. These kind of organisations take from natural sources and changing them to energy or other products (fuel, furnishings and so on). In this matter we have grat, international companies which earn a lot of money and have quite nice results at the stock market. Despite the fact that humanity is looking for alternative power sources our corporations going to be based on fuel and coal for the nearest future. The new brances of industry is an IT industry, for example concerns like: software development company, computer services, IT outsourcing firm and many others. These organisations create and dispose high range technology.

What’s wondering some of them do not provide real, material product, but virtual like the social network corporations (they create only virtual applications), in some kind of way software development company act in the same way. It is amazing that people want and make money on product which don’t actually exist – gis systems. We have a big places to collect database which can’t be read without using computer so they exist but only in some way, the same we may say about, for example, very old film productions on cellulose tape, but in this case we have got a large difference: to play an old film we kave to have a proper apparatus, but it’s a piece of very easy to construct mechanical tool, in case of current databases we must have software (also advanced technology). In the end we have professions which disappear or even already completely vanished such as shoemaker (this profession is replace by production corporations) or blacksmith (it does exist but just as a artistic business or as a part of high range stables; with racing or pedigree horses), many of them disappear in the future.

Our civilisation is changing, we develop, make and destroy our reality, nobody knows in which way goes the path of humanity, but we have to be aware of the results of our decisions and impact on nature.
