Technology in the future

"All this technology is making us antisocial"

At first glance it looks like we are becoming less social as we are glued to our devices - whether they are laptops, tablets, mobile phones or other smaller wearable devices'

However I disagree with the premise that we are becoming antisocial due to this technology.
By definition "social"means 'relating to society or its organisation'.  We are actually able to keep in touch MORE than was possible ever before. It is easier to get in touch and stay in touch anytime anywhere. And that makes us more social not less; neither does it make us antisocial.

  1. Hi Jay
    Great to read your thoughts on this provocation. I tend to agree. I am able to keep in touch with so many people via technology and I wouldn't have a hope of getting around them all face to face nor on the old phone system.
    By the way, thanks for sharing with our visitors from Northland today. I heard them share some of the things you mentioned to them. It seems like you were a great help.
