With the increasing sophistication and accessibility of technology, we are living in a very different age, but it is still a very human age. We are constantly connected to the internet, yet it is still an alien world. That’s why the best tech solutions are the ones that are designed to make us human. With this being said, I have to admit, I’m a little conflicted about my love for technology.
Most of us are a little envious of how cool the internet is, but we also sometimes wish that things like email and texting were a little more human-centric. I think this is where the human-centric approach comes in. Technology is a tool that makes us human, but it is also something that can harm us. If we can be more aware of how we use technology, then we can make the best use of it.
I’m not sure I agree with the part where we’re all just going through a bad case of “technology overload” with emails, texts, etc. I think it’s good for us to be aware of our technology usage. It’s a good thing to know what we are using it for and what we shouldn’t be using it for.
The way I would personally approach this is to think of each technology as a different type of tool that can be used for good or bad. For instance, I have no problem using my phone to make calls or take pictures, but I have a very big problem with texting. Like, I would much rather use my phone to make calls and take pictures to the next appointment than to text and tell someone how much I love them (which I would do anyways).
I think this same mentality applies to every single technology we use. We should use it for good and not for bad. We should be thinking, “If I could do this, this, and this, then I could do this, this, and this.
The problem with using technology for bad is that it doesn’t really help. Texting is great when you want to hold a phone conversation and know your friends would love to know you and you don’t want to say it, but it also comes at a time when people are so busy texting and talking on the phone that they actually miss out on real life. Technology is meant to help us remember what we’re spending our time on and how we can spend it with people we care about.
This is why people are so quick to blame technology for bad things. We love to tell someone their life isnt perfect because they are using technology, or their car isnt good because they are texting instead of driving, or their job isnt great because they are online instead of working. Technology is good, but not perfect, and we are quick to throw blame at it when things go wrong.
The problem is that people will only remember the bad things about technology if they are connected to it directly. If you are in a band and you are only using a computer to play your guitar, you will remember that you have a bad gig because you didn’t go to a good one. But if you are using a computer to play video games, you will remember your bad gig because you have the Internet.
The same logic applies when it comes to technology. People only remember the bad things from it if they are connected to it directly. A hacker is a hacker is a hacker. But if you are using the Internet to play video games, you will remember your bad gig because you have the Internet.
We don’t always have the Internet at the top of our minds. That’s a good thing, because if you are doing something in the middle of a game, you will come up with a different sound. We use a computer to play our games for 20 minutes. This means that when we go to play the game, we do all the damage and will not even know it’s been played.
