Living in the era of technological success and superiority, this title is apt and worth some deliberation.
To kick-start, technology is man's brainchild. Man creates this intelligence to provide convenience as well as efficiency at work and everyday life. As a result, productivity increases, customers and consumers can also smile with contentment. Machines and devices have made difficult and arduous tasks become simple and manageable. This way, life is less stressful and we can have ample time to spend with family and friends.
Technology supersedes many of man's abilities, skills and talent. For example, robotic technology has contributed to medical breakthroughs requiring precision, as well as mass production of goods to meet the market demand. Computer technology has dwindled the size of mother earth to a global village via communication across countries and continents. Definitely, best of all is computer animation which has enhanced the quality of entertainment nowadays and unshackled the paradigms of producers and movie makers.
This blogosphere – http://speakup-avenue.blogspot.com. is a living example of another benefit of technology to education for mankind. The present generation of learners are fortunate to enjoy state-of-the-art digital library at minimum cost, with 24-hour connection to almost anybody with access to the internet. Without multiple net services and facilities, education will be limited within the four brick walls of the classrooms.
What else can man possibly ask for, given all these luxurious technological inventions and innovations?
Perhaps...a little bit more consideration, concern and discretion in applying and using technology in our lives. We get exasperated listening to news of abuse and misconduct, as well as lack sensitivity, with regard to man and technology.
Man can be proud of science, but he should resist from exploiting this knowledge and expertise to produce more lethal weapons and causing any scale of destruction. Similarly, we take pride in gadgets and devices that ensure security and surveillance, but individual privacy must be respected in every way.
This list of considerations, deliberations, and points to ponder, with regard to man and technology, is never exhaustive.You may want to add your own observation and opinion on this topic.
Last but not least, welcome to the reality check on technology - man's best friend which can retaliate and become the worst enemy.
