I don’t blame technology either… I blame this cultures use of it. Technology is what made heart transplants possible, the meds I use, this computer I’m on. Technology also made it possible to grow food in previously hostile soil types…
It’s how tech is used. Do we really need an app that will turn the air conditioning on in our home when we’re on vacation half a world away? Do we really need an app that will tell us what the weather is like… outside… right now? I’ve watched my brother fiddle with his phone for 10 minutes to find the app to plug in numbers to hold up the phone and say… “The app says it’s raining right now”
I know that, I can feel the rain on my head. I knew it was raining 10 minutes before you… that is why I’m standing under shelter and not getting wet. But he was so consumed with his phone… he ignored his other senses. That is when I think tech is a problem.
I don’t blame the existence of tech… I blame how it’s used. There are nations that have a more balanced relationship with tech then us in the states.
My brother always say… “If you don’t know tech… your going to be left behind”
Really? is that why I got out of the rain 10 minutes before you and I’m still dry? If I loose my phone, I can still get from point a to point b.
