Technorati Profile

So, what is the big deal about Tech?

Does it make a difference? There is much data to suggest that it does. We live longer because of advances in medicine. We have more idle time due to the commoditization of technology. We build increasing levels of safety in automobiles. We are able to communicate with people on the other side of the world, in real time. (First there was snail-mail, then the elephone, and now the internet.) But through it all, are we better off? Has life become any simpler? Has our quality of life improved? Are we more caring for others? Are we outward-focused (serving others), or inward-facing (serving ourselves). We have more, but do we share more? We should have more time, but our lifestyles suggest otherwise. Based on all the choices we are offered in daily life (for most of us), we should be more satisfied and content, but research suggest otherwise. We are increasingly stressed, tired, and struggle to maintain a sense of being able to contribute. So, what gives? Big questions. Oh well. The pondering continues...
