First of all, I am not a native English speaker and I'm completely new here, so please forgive me if I have posted the question in a wrong category or anything.
I am trying to write my Statement of Purpose for my Grad School and I want help completing this sentence.
"Being born into an era of technological revolution and electronic ___________ I was extremely fascinated by the electronic appliances right from my childhood."
So what should I fill in that blank? Something along the lines of revolution or industry. And should there be a "the" before electronic appliances or not?
