I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
Really great point. Technology provides us with tools. Tools can be used for good or for bad. Just like a hammer can be used to build great things or smash stuff to bits, smartphones can be used to connect, communicate, and create or they can just be used to crush a bunch of candy (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
