Boom.

Today was bad. My phone died on me. It short-circuited or something and just wouldn’t switch on.

And if you had experienced this before, you know how bad it felt, like a blow to your face.

Technology is like an extension of myself. Contacts, information and entertainment at my fingertips, and without a doubt, in the future, it might be worse.

It made think about how we start to grow dependent on technology from places to eat to basic everyday facts. Though, maybe that is a good thing. Technology removes the burden of knowing to them, allowing us to be free to think creatively, to ponder about thinks that we otherwise wouldn’t. We become more human in that case, to be creative. Instead of being the encyclopaediae, we become the curator – compiling and digesting information to find the meaning behind them.

Maybe, technology is good after all. Hmm… A thing to ponder about.
