The information 'age' is not a new age, it is just a small part of the industrial age, a new age us a sciesmic shift in humanity, like the industrial revolution and the bronze age, the information age does not fit this category as it is not a new age and just a small matter, and don't forget that the world wide web is a British invention, so was the first computer, but it doesn't matter as we are all living in the industrial age now, and it will probably be centuries untill the next new age arrives, these things are very rare
Sorry, but no, the information age is a real age, like any other, it's not "part" of something because it did revolutionize the world and advance our species, a lot more than most ages. Also, an invention was not the only thing that sparked it, it was the popularity that sparked the age, and face it, the UK doesn't have the population to define what products are popular now, the US does.

I hate the US, but you have to give credit where due, US consumers are what made the world wide web important, without that interest it would have likely gone the way of beta cassettes, and the information age was only marked by the advent of the internet, it wasn't what created it, nor is it what fuels it. The information age is fueled by people finally embracing their natural curiosity, wanting to know, that's what fuels it, and what sparked it. The US people got sick of being in the dark, so we found the technology to end that era and begin the new one.

Look at where all the big companies that drive free access to information are located. They're almost all US based companies, with only a few others. Then there's the fact that without Microsoft's OS, Windows, the internet would never have been usable by most people because most people are not bright enough to use the better OSes.
