I’m no better-never
, I don’t think technology is ruining our brain, life or whatnot. I truly believe though, that like anything else, it’s our use of it that makes it the Good or the Villain. Sometimes it’s actually the over-use of it that makes it the latter. As I was revisiting “Connected
“, I thought about relearning to be disconnected and how I have failed to consider that sometimes
the only way to appreciate something’s value is by distancing oneself from it for a while. Relearning to appreciate technology, rethinking its effect on our lives can only be possible by unplugging the matrix and then re-plugging with a new perspective.
Not convinced? Monika Guzmano from geekWire
makes a good sell of it on her Ignite talk: Why I unplug.
It definitely gives you something to think about.
Have a great Sunday!
I admit it, I'm a Geek and Poke fan. You gotta give it to the guys, they're good, so much that I share almost every strip I get my hands on. Yesterday I saw this one:
I thought it was really funny and though I know I shouldn't, I kind of felt sorry for Apple. It's crazy how much innovation these guys come out with and they still get this much criticised. It really reminded me of Louis CK's video "Everything is Amazing & Nobody is Happy" that I revisited lately thanks to twitter. I think we should stop sometimes and Just appreciate how far technology has come throughout these recent years. I'll leave you with the video and wish you a great Sunday!
