NO LIKES, NO UPDATES

July 29, 2013

Life without computers, what  does it look like? It is like I am back in school writing a composition but today I will not compose but write as the thoughts occur to me. Life will go on as usual.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Computer technology has pervaded our daily life, in gadgets in our homes and work places that we no longer notice it. From washing machines to communication gadgets. Getting information from spell check to latest research in any field. No longer slaving over typewriters or cookers (simply time them) or painstakingly sketching a scene for a cartoon movie again and again and so on. Visits to the library for information have been reduced as information is at the tips of our fingers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Earlier,we would lose contact with people who moved away ,now we can chat with strangers seven seas across and rediscover long lost friends. We can discuss issues, ask questions and seek opinions on various forums .                                                                                                                                                                                                            On the flip side, we are bombarded with so much information that there is very little knowledge and all noise. Authenticity is suspect. We have begun to live in a virtual world where we feel safe. We communicate day long, almost obsessively but say nothing.Issues are raised, frenzy is created, very few people understand the real issue and then suddenly it dies.  Narcissism is the key word. Cyber crimes have taken over and medical problems associated with use of computers are on the rise. We play Farmville but fail to take time to sit in our lawn and watch the sunset and listen to the birds. We are saving time by using computer aided gadgets but failing to utilise it by reaching out to our near and dear ones. And when there is a break down or glitch in the system, our anger is out of proportion because we feel left out or because life is so fast and demanding that we miss out.                                                                                 PLAYFUL SQUIRREL                                           I have deliberately used old fashioned language in keeping with the spirit of the topic.                                                                                                                               There was a problem in my INTERNET connection last night and I did not rest till it was restored this afternoon. I felt so lost and helpless!

  1. I enjoyed reading your post! 🙂 Indeed one feels quite helpless without being in touch through the world of internet, and the realisation can make one feel terrible!
    Thanks for having a look and liking my post, I look forward to more more of your posts! 🙂
