Have you guys ever thought what it would be like without emerging media, or any technology at all? It might be a little easier for your grandparents to imagine than us, but go ahead and try.
How would you wake up in the morning? How would you communicate with your dear from college that now lives on the other side of the States? What would you do to kill time? How would you or your kids do homework?
This is just something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. I’ve noticed that our society is completely dependent on emerging media and other technology used for communication. I know that our species has an innate need for communication and connection. But does it have to be 24/7? Why do we constantly have to check our phones through dinner with a friend you haven’t seen in years? Why do we spend so much time on Facebook, even though we try not to. I plan on doing some research on this through the week. I’ll update with another post on my findings.
