Though we’re clearly a tech-loving culture, there’s no denying that a lot of people tend to talk about technology in quite negative ways.
There are complaints about the fact that we’re focussing less on nature and what makes us human and more on the latest gadgets and technology advances. People say that we don’t go outside enough because technology makes it more fun to stay indoors. Some say that we don’t pay enough attention to each other or our studies, and that our attention spans in general are being negatively affected. There are also concerns that people are losing their jobs because of the increasing role of automation.
A pretty bleak picture is being painted here, right? Are we becoming so obsessed both with entertainment and how far we can push technology that we’re putting humanity second and technology first. But is this really the case? The fact is that the vast majority of technology we produce is being used to help humanity in various ways. Perhaps it’s worth taking a minute or two (or five or ten; it depends on how fast you can read) to remind ourselves of the areas in which tech advances are helping us!
