Technology has become so ingrained in modern, civilized culture that sometimes we don’t even notice it. When was the last time you marveled at a train, a toaster, or a television? Most of us aren’t even fazed by the marvel of mobile phones anymore. The shine of new technology wears off fast.
There are those who believe technology is bad for society. There’s over-reliance on gadgets, attention spans are shrinking, kids don’t play outside anymore…the list of complaints about the negative impact of technology goes on and on.
But that’s not my list. I love technology. I love having a universe of information at my fingertips. I love carrying around my entire music collection in my pocket. I love getting a new book with a couple of clicks. I love online shopping, social media, blogging, and the many applications on my computer that make writing fun and easy.
I can’t wait to see what technologies hit the mainstream next!
