Too Much Technology?

With computers having firmly entrenched themselves in our professional lives, do you think that they have actually made work simpler? Or reduced paper wastage? Or lessened work hours? Basically, is all this technology that is making the world a 'global village' a good thing or is it leading to deteriorating health and the 'mechanisation' of humanity?

And this is what the folks say:

"I think it's socially isolating and politically polarizing. Instead of interacting with people in person, more and more people are inclined to just go into a chat room or a message board or send an email. "

"Actually,I think it is making us downhill with all this technology which decrease our responsibility."

"Mankind has lived for thousands of years without these things, and now that the internet and wireless have come up everywhere people act like they can't live without them."


"its not really too much technology per say. its just that we are getting lazier haha. someday ipods will take over the world, then cell phones will take over those, then laptops will eat both then enslave humans "

"too much reliance on technology...people have lost their ability to unplug."

"Many people are too reliant upon technology and are becoming lazy. For example, in math class, many people are almost dependent updon their calculators and are unable to do even simple multiplication and other math problems. "

"When I finally got a cell phone,I started using it all the time. Now I look back and wonder how I survived without it. "

"The computer, more than anything else, has helped man emerge from the slavery of the machine age. "

"Hmm, hmmmm, hmm, no, hmmm, hmm, well, hmm, yes."

"We need more in the way of technology that will end poverty, etc."


"At times, yes."

"On one level the universe can be thought of as composed of naturally ocurring technology. The pertinent question is if there are too many humans with too much control over technology - too this I answer yes."

"hmm.. if you are talking about ipods, then YES."

And i would say- "Everything has to be faster and faster.We're not making new products.We're just reinventing things to give us instant gratification.Besides,at times,it is just all about a trade between the corporation and the bourgeois while it is kind of 'unhealthy'for the unaffordable who keep on admiring the trend of technology ! "


Now,this is the time for you to tell what you think about this topic-Too Much Technology?

Thank you.

CAN computers...

make work simpler?
of course!
reduce paper wastage
of course!
lessen work hours!
of course!

but why didnt all those things happen?
simpler work is not here because
we push the limits
we CAN do work that were done before computers now faster with computers.
but since we can do faster and more
of course we want to do more
and we push the limits
so it seems work never get simpler

BUT lets not forget, even though work did not get any faster or easier
we now PRODUCE more!
and that gives us more stuff
i say
it is our inefficient use of the stuff we get that makes us feel that we are not better off

but WHY DIDNT WE SEEM TO NOTICE THE INCREASED PRODUCTION & INCOME ???

simply because our wages is in the form of money, and we try so hard to get so much money, most of us dont even know how to spend that money properly to improve our lives

it is like this:
we earn more in value now, thanks too technology. that is for sure
but have prices for stuff increase?
not really, not too much anyway.
what definitely increased alot is our appetite for products. and what's more, products ADVERTISED

you fools, you succumb to advertisement and complain it dont satisfy you?

with the wage you can earn today, you can do 2 things. work less, but you dont get so much products(but isnt the products before technology came along that you want?, and they are cheap!), or work more and get more products(new products, expensive products - cost more, you need to earn more for it)

shut up. you can work less if you want to. it is just that you dont get the stuff you RECENTLY WOULD WANT
all the stuff you wanted BEFORE TECH came about is very easily, with little work, YOURS!!!

so what do we want?
i rememner a memeticist saying that human beings are novelty seeking species.
thats very good, it is what drives us.
but do we voluntarily seek our novelty?

no, novelty is now MANUFACTURED, and ADVERTISED
there is no need for novelty to be in products, it's just that you spend your money so much on those manufactured novelty that you have little else left before.
and you cry and complain that we are not better off than before.

""""I think it's socially isolating and politically polarizing. Instead of interacting with people in person, more and more people are inclined to just go into a chat room or a message board or send an email. """"

WHAT DO YOU WANT?
you want to talk face to face?
THEN DO IT YOU FOOL!!!
does tech DISALLOW us from doing it???
are you CHAINING YOURSELF, then CRYING???


""""Mankind has lived for thousands of years without these things, and now that the internet and wireless have come up everywhere people act like they can't live without them.""""

they can't live their CURRENT WAY OF LIVING without them
if you dont like the current way of living, if you want to go back, YOU CAN
just GO

""""Many people are too reliant upon technology and are becoming lazy. For example, in math class, many people are almost dependent updon their calculators and are unable to do even simple multiplication and other math problems. """"

YOU FOOL, do you think we are SMART?!
we are NOT, we need to make full use of our inventions in order to progress our math!
what is the USE of doing repetitive rudimentary calculations in the head??? to win math competitions???

do you want all the use of computers for math to end? that is like using an axe, when you got a chainsaw!

"""""On one level the universe can be thought of as composed of naturally ocurring technology. The pertinent question is if there are too many humans with too much control over technology - too this I answer yes."""""

natural technology?
what the hell is that?
do you even know what is technology?
and control over technology, you dont want that?
you want nuclear power plant breakdown?
airplane crashes?
unconstrained bird flu?
heck even malaria?

"""And i would say- "Everything has to be faster and faster.We're not making new products.We're just reinventing things to give us instant gratification.Besides,at times,it is just all about a trade between the corporation and the bourgeois while it is kind of 'unhealthy'for the unaffordable who keep on admiring the trend of technology ! """"

YOU ARE RIGHT!
but do you BLAME TECHNOLOGY?
you should BLAME YOURSELVES!!!
being promiscuous and complaining about AIDS?

you ppl make me sick
what is wrong with all of you???

yay ZCER....totally agree here(but i dunno what u were saying after that bout the wages..bla bla..)
...
of coz...comps are making us much better....can u imagine making a pic vid without all these tech??....man..that would hav taken years....well....of coz there are pros and cons in everithing...u cant expect coms 2 b perfect either..so they have health effects..of cos they are coming up wif better and healthier comps....and without those technology .. how can we make comps good in both the work side and the health side...and humans are of coz not getting lazier....people are spending more time in front of the computer... making
B I G things...other than in the farm...growing SMALL crops...does that mean we are lazier?....no of coz....if you take a plane for 24 hours from KL to NY are you lazzier than a guy walking 24 hours from florida to miami?..HELL no....ur accomplishing much more by using the same amount of time... u suffer mental stress...while the walking person suffers physical stress...even if u call that lazy...we are definitely achieving much more than being hardworking...so why not??

Hi ##NAME##. I don't normally bother with comments but feel a little bored today and am trying to waste a little time. I was just surfing around the net (actually looking for info on airplane crash) when I came across your blog. Just wanted to let you that I've gone back and read through some of your past posts. They caught my interest and I can relate to a quite a bit of what you say. So keep it up - I guess.

i think that internet technology is isolating. you see more and more people on the computer all the time, never really getting a chance to experience the outside world keeping them from friends,family, and community.

Hello!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may commense earning with a sum that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per day now.
