Pity Earth’s Creatures

Yet another article bashing technological addiction at the cost of nature:

It’s not just ponds being steamrollered for industry, but gazing itself being lost to Twitter. The attention span involved in formulating a menagerie out of cloud shapes in the sky while lax on one’s back in the grass has been eclipsed by what’s interesting on-screen 20 inches away, and conscientious parents will troop their youngster to a planetarium, as to the dinosaur hall next door.

I tend to believe that these incredible technologies continue to liberate us from the prison of biology, to become more aware of our surroundings. Digital tools make me want to explore the world more and share my experiences, not less.

If you're an artist, photographer, writer, etc., I highly recommend creating your own blog and publishing something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).

Denying the GPS

Rarely do we override the GPS because we know a better way.

We depend on technology to reveal answers 99% of the time.  We override technology 1% of the time, and even then we have our doubts.

The irony, of course, is that while technology makes our lives easier, we forfeit the chance to think and learn new things.  We know more than ever but we experience less.  

Experience puts the bones in the goose.  There’s no evolution without a beautiful struggle.

The computer is a second brain, threatening our primary neurons.  The machine is replacing the animal in all of us.
