My Support of Mr. Friedman’s Statement that the World Is Flat Mr. Pederson

Many of you posed some great comments and arguments for Mr. Friedman’s statement that he believes the world is flat.  Many of you relied on the photographic evidence or gravity as your proof.

However, Mr. Friedman makes his comment based on Technology, and time.  Through Technology, things are able to be accomplished at any time of the day, communication can take place across the world instantaneously.  Using the the example of e-mail, a child was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer by a doctor in India after the doctor in the United States had conducted lab test and sent the results to him.  The doctor in the United States was able to call the family back in the second day and prescribe a cure.

A second example would be JITS (Just in time supply) systems.  Wal Mart and Amazon are prime examples of this supply system; where they can get an order for a product and send it to the customer over night.  As the customer makes their purchase at the cash register, the computer simultaneously communicates with the manufacturers computer to generate a production order so fulfillment of inventory can be accomplished at the store or wear house location .

Finally, we can communicate with friends and family across time zones and the world.  We can receive movies and photos and stay in contact.

I will entertain any rebuttal to this and Mr. Friedman.
