Technology and Humans… 2017
I said I’d write about this more, some other time… well hello 2017, nice to see you.
In my last note, I was blissfully unaware that Trump would be president. That FB would fuel fake news, hatred, and violence. That the screens we hold in our hands 24/7 also allowed us to see the world for what it actually is- dark, depressing, difficult, sad.
I hope you’re doing okay. I know I just got really dark. But it doesn’t have to be that way. No, not at all.
I’m not going to get academic about tech and culture. If you’re on medium and reading this, you know they are intrinsically involved. Lovers, almost.
If you work in tech, be more responsible. Be like a journalist. A good one. See the world plainly, objectively, and most importantly- kindly.
No good journalist I have ever read is mean.
Trump would make a terrible journalist. So let’s take him down.
Thanks for reading.
