Government, politics, and employment in the workplace are being revolutionized by the changing shape of information. A few decades ago, paperwork dominated the workplace. Filing cabinets, typewriters and personally delivered mail controlled information exchange. Due to the development of computers and the internet, this ancient way of work has quickly been replaced with modern methods. Electronic filing systems replaced cabinets, keyboards replaced typewriters, and Email replaced conventional mail. These innovations have become widely accepted due to their ease of use, as well as their enhanced productivity. Recently, the emergence of the smartphone led to another improvement in the workplace. The smartphone allows people to receive Emails and participate in conferences anywhere there is service. Smartphones flatten the workplace by essentially making the whole world a giant office. The changing shape of information also changes the employment process. Beforehand job-searchers would print out resume after resume and mail them to potential employers. Nowadays applications such as Jobcast organize information and send it to possible employers. To conclude, the workplace as well as employment has been continually flattened by new technologies, and the changing shape of information.
