Thinking back on the dark ages before the
internet it amazes me how we just lived on and accepted all that non
communication and snail speed life as normal.
OMG, Dont get me started on that.. Personally I have no doubt that the "speed" at which we are expected to live now, will be our downfall. We are already discovering many cases of "burnout" in the work place than before.
I love the communication aspect of the Internet in regards to being able to interact with new people the world over, but that time has become the overall commodity in life is frightening.
Needs a new thread, but has anyone seen the UK anti-technology mini series, plays that go under the heading of Black Mirror. VERY VERY inventive and fantastically written, and extremely dark. They handle the question of "where all this technology is taking us", and being British, is NOT a bundle of laughs. Worth a look!
Right now I have the good fortune to be living in a wonderful, house overlooking the Fjord, and I make it a point to just sit watching the view for at least 15 minutes imediatly after coming home from work, to shake off the Shooting Schedules, the Budget plans, the Deadlines, the Milestones, and the vast deluge of email...
