Do We Shape Technology or Is It Shaping Us?

What an incredible time we are living in.  To think that much of the modern technology that exists today is still considered to be…in it’s infancy.  So many barriers (except for maybe battery power) have been broken thanks to circuit miniaturization and the connectivity which exists through the “Internet of Things”.  And yet, the power of creativity…the power of imagination is allowing us to go further and further.

Technology is providing so many great tools for us to use.  But there are some who caution on how over-reliant we are becoming to these inventions as a society.  So this poses a question.  What is dictating our future?  What defines our purpose?  At what point has technology had an effect on our humanity?  All good questions.  One can only hope that these tools will help us live and develop more efficiently…rather than transform ourselves into the machines we create.
