I hear a lot people complaining about this generation being too involved with the internet. That everyone is “plugged in” and never has time to be “in the moment.” When people say this I usually reply by saying “what? Sorry I was just checking my Facebook.” Everyone who thinks were becoming isolated robots, whose relationships come down to how many times we comment about our friends on Facebook, needs to calm down. It’s a natural part of our human race becoming more efficient, as is older generation unwillingness to adjust. For example I cannot spell well. This is a result of years of spell check and never needing to know how to spell words longer than eight letters (I’ve used it twice since writing this.) Older people would say that were becoming dumber as a result of technology, but these are the same old people who ask me how to log on a computer or how to send an email. Most of what kids are learning today in schools are on the computer, because of that were becoming faster and more proficient year after year.
If you have been reading my blog, than you know I like the idea of Technological Singularity. It’s going to happen (I believe) it’s just a matter of time, and the best thing you can do is try to keep up with the changing times.
