While appreciating the enormous benefits that technologies like the smartphone have bestowed on the human species, we must also have the honesty and courage to step aside, pause and think about the unintended ways in which technology has changed how we live, think and work. When technology makes our lives easier, it also makes us lazier. Technologies like the Internet diminish our cognitive abilities, reduce our attention spans, weaken our autonomy, and change our social habits. Human brains are also changing with our use of technology. Technology critics are not technophobes. We must be alive to the dark underbelly of technologies, that’s all.
