- Dependency on Technology

 

Doug from Design Technica has written one of the most intriguing and true articles I have read in some time. He talks about the recent blackouts in the United States and how it made our dependency on technology ever-so-clear to him. The last paragraph in the piece sums things up beautifully. Do you depend on technology too much?

 

So while technology is ever increasing and always making our lives easier we grow more addicted to it. My daughter looks at my old slide rule with amazement. The fact that daddy used to multiple by rubbing two sticks together seems primitive to someone born in this silicon age. There is nothing like a massive blackout to remind us of just how much of an impact technology has had on our lives. How much of our day is consumed with wires, chips and interfaces. We work and play with technology now, but it is still nice to curl up with a good old fashion book and remember a simpler time.
