Technology and You
Making peace with our best friend and worst enemy.
Oh, blessed technology.
Oh, cursed technology.
I don’t know.
Maybe it’s how you look at it.
Science wants to slow aging.
We all want to slow aging.
I want to be one.
Science wants to extend fertility.
We want to have babies later.
Super-mommies and daddies.
I’m done having kids, you?
The world wants to defeat cancer.
I want to be out of a job.
All out of work.
I love technology.
You love technology.
We all love technology.
Sometimes, we all hate technology.
Damn you, autocorrect!
But l’ll admit, there’s cool stuff happening.
I wrote this on a techno-masterpiece.
You’re reading this on an amazing technologically advanced machine.
What do you want?
To live longer, have babies longer, beat cancer?
All of the above?
What do want your technology to do?
Microstep: Join the technology revolution for a day. Or don’t. Think about how technology makes your life better. Then think about how it makes your life worse. Strike a balance. Embrace tech where it’s working for you. Let it go where it’s unworkable.
