It’s hard to imagine the kind of world that our young people will have the pleasure of looking forward to. I’m thinking along the lines of modern technology and how it is designed to serve modern people. I understand the benefits, and I also believe that a benefit has the potential of being a detriment.
I read a blog “What Is Google Glass? What You Need To Know” and found the idea of a google glass interesting and it spurred me to ask: How far will technology go? I’ve got nothing against progress, but sometimes I have to wonder whether the progress is more geared toward the sake of progress itself, capitalism, or toward it being in the “best interest” of others? Yeah, I know. Capitalism wins.
Who knows? Maybe we’ve become a disposable society in over abundance and believe that what is new today is a ticket item for what is to come tomorrow. In other words, today’s new things are made redundant before we can even blink. No. Wait. We have become a disposable society and we do expect tomorrow to present something new. It appears that we are in a constant flux, a chase, a wish to seek the new and this enables us to ‘believe’ we’ll be ‘happier’ if we have it now. For some, this might be true. But really?
These are some of my thoughts and opinions for now. Brief and short.
