That sounds a bit negative, doesn’t it? After all, these advances in technology are a huge benefit to mankind, are they not? Don’t they greatly enhance our lives, making them more efficient, more worthwhile, somehow just “better”?
Well to be honest, I’m not so sure. Let’s take a look at some of them:
So there you are, the dinosaur’s view of the age of technology. The age of Bill Gates not being smart enough to give his money away faster than he makes it. The age when Zuckerberg has more money than most countries in Africa. The age of amazing connectivity when people sit in fine dining restaurants communicating with people they don’t know when their friends are right across the table.
Technology? Where’s my land line? I want to call home.
