Well, let’s take a look back at what we had to go through not too long ago after taking some photographs. We had to send the film for developing and printing, without even having the option of viewing the photographs before they were printed.
The same happened if you needed to create a website. It would have cost a lot of money to pay someone else to design and program the site for you, and then you would have needed some training on how to keep it updated.
Today, everything has to be done now, immediately. Everything is shared and happening in real time; everything is simple. If you’re running a business, a website or a portfolio you need to be able to do all of that, and more.
