I like to question things and often the internet is where I look for answers, with scrutiny of course. I don't look at the issue of tech as a one way or the other thing. I am not anti-tech, that would be like being anti-hammer and nails. I have my own devices and I like my tech. These devices are useful and come in very handy. They make a lot of things more convenient and yet I can't help but wonder sometimes, is all this tech dumbing us down? Are people going to change their behaviors in the real world based on behavioral habits they develop online? If that happens it will be a mass dumbing down, the kind that Christians will see as a sign of the "end of days." A world where humans have forgotten how to be humane. A different sort of zombie apocalypse with all the classic symptoms of the real thing.
It's easy to feel like we know more because we have access to more information than ever before but being able to Google something doesn’t make us smarter, it just makes us better typists and just because we feel smarter doesn't mean it has to manifest as being a smartass. It doesn't help that there is more mis-information than information out there and that is only going to get worse too. I guess I’m torn, I love technology but it’s a little daunting. What will the cost be in the long run? New tech is coming out so fast it’s like a whirlwind we only imagine we are keeping up with.
