Is technology taking over?

In the past year or so, I came across a video that my cousin posted on Facebook that really opened my eyes and made me realize how much people use technology. This video is eye opening because not many people realize that many electronic devices or social media sites can be an addiction of theirs. Answer this, how long are you able to be without your cell phone or laptop? How long can you go without using Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, or any other website? As stated in the video, nowadays people rather Skype over an electronic than meet up in person. Why does it seem like our society is controlled with technology and we as humans not realize their should be a limit to how we them and for how long? Life now is way different than it was years back. What if our generation didn’t grow up with so much technology? Would your life be filled with more happiness, rather than going on the internet and finding out what someone else is doing or eating? Is it a necessity or obligation to let everyone know what our next move in life will be? Overall, this video is an eye opener as stated in the beginning and should be watched by many.

    The world has changed and made people completely different. I think our great grandparents wouldn’t understand because is so different than what they are used to. We wouldn’t cope well in their time because it is so different than ours. We are a more virtual society than they were, we could order clothes online and back then you actually had to get up and buy them or even make them. I think this is a really cool topic and is actually interesting and controversial.

    “I imagine a world where we smile when we have low batteries, cause that’ll mean we’re one bar closer to humanity” I loved that line, and the video! Makes ya think

    Alejandra-
    First of all, I love your new blog background–it is fun and brings your personality to your post. Thank you for taking pride in your writing.
    This is a very interesting video and he does make a lot of great points–he is a great motivational speaker. At the same time it is also good to look at the benefits of technology. Others may argue that technology has actually increased technology and interactions with people around the world because we can connect with someone at the snap of a finger.
    I think you could do a lot of great work around the field of technology and this inquiry projects but also think about if this had enough power to keep you excited and interested for the entire semester.
    Good job!
