Importance of Communication

Obviously we need to communicate in order to get stuff done right? So why is the history important in the first place? The reason is because it's how we got to where we're at now. From the phones we call and text on to the video chats on the computer, there was a base line to start this all. Before that we would have to draw in order to record information, then a spoken language, then a written language and then technology got involved to make everything easier. Most people couldn't even fathom how much time and work it took to get these basic understandings of reading, writing, and speaking. So much goes into communication and it's really simple until you think about it, we come a very long way from 30,000 BC and reading this information should hopefully help.
