*TAP TAP TAP*
It's circuits and wires and metal and layers of plastic, and enough electricity to kill you instantly. Reality is out in the world around you and it takes more than an ounce of outward thinking to realize that all of it has an impact on you, and no matter how much time you spend on a computer, unless you actually do something - you aren't going to leave any legacy behind, whatsoever.
I feel sorry for web page designers. One day, their entire life's work is going to be gone and there is going to be nothing to show for it. Hell, all it will take is one oddball ray from the sun to fry every computer on this planet and then all of this will be gone. All my writings, all my words, all my accounts, hell, all my debt. Its all on computers today, could be gone tomorrow.
I work on computers for a living, but they aren't my life. My life is in other things and it took my career to realize how much of a detriment these pieces of technology really are to those who don't know any better. If I could say anything at all it would be to not let your children grow up to be the inward thinkers who know nothing but computers and the Internet. Being where I am I know just how fragile this technology really is, and you may say or believe that it will be around forever but I guarantee you it won't. Whether it be by the hands of men who take it away from us or it be nature that destroys it, it can and will happen.
Don't allow your children to grow up not knowing anything of the world or how to survive in it without these pieces of technology. Allow them to embrace the ideas of outward thinking, meeting new people, using their imaginations, creating things with their hands, learning to do things that aren't EASY; otherwise, you just set them and all the future generations up for failure.
Just wanted to give credit to the topic The Computer and New Technoogy is DESTROYING Our Society by bluestar.ranch. I had posted this on Facebook about a month ago, but their topic inspired me to post mine on here.
