It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity. – Albert Einstein
It’s 7: 19 PM on day 236 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a banana for breakfast, prepare my Kid of the Week feature for tomorrow only stopping to feed myself Chapati and chicken curry for lunch, go visit my aunt and uncle at my cousin’s house – God I love my family… shortly after we arrived my aunt disappeared and when she returned we asked her where she had been it turns out she was turning my father’s car upside down looking for the gold chain I’d lost while on vacation isn’t that the sweetest thing you’ve ever heard 🙂 – and feed myself Chapati and chicken curry for dinner.
Today my sister and were sitting in the same room and I said annoyed by her incessant texting it is a general rule that when someone is in the room with you that you should be talking to them and not be looking down at your phone and my sister being the smart-alack that she is responded by saying something along the lines of there’s a simple solution for that I’ll just switch the TV on for you that way both of us will be staring at something and in that moment I realized that technology was tearing us apart rather than bringing us together. Is technology stripping us of our ability to communicate effectively?
