  • Technology is not Magic

    Technology is not magic. It might, at times, seem like magic, but it is not magic. One of the interesting things about technology is that it begets more technology. The more tools we have the more tools we can create. The creation of tools, in and of itself, is not necessarily good or bad. How we use the tools we create is good or bad. For example, let us look at what is referred to as social media. The websites that commonly are thought to comprise social media are merely tools enabling people to conveniently communicate with one another. This could be quite good if utilized for a noble purpose. However, if we simply use social media to kill time then an otherwise potentially valuable tool becomes a time waster.
