New technologies. Review

28102015SYesterday we talked about New Technologies. As usual, there were different opinions among the audience. The first agreement we achieved was that the improper use of technologies can be bad for people. Sometime people talk about addictions, for example to the mobile phone. But I think, as Tom Uglow said, we are addicted to information, which flows through devices like computers, tablets pc, or mobile phones.  Information is power and we live in a time where we have almost instant access to information so keep updated make us powerful. It is also true that technology destroys jobs today, but we also can see how technology creates jobs for the future. What remains to be seen is if Technology will be able to create jobs for everyone all over the world.

So don’t blame it on the computers, don’t blame it on the mobile phones, don’t blame it on the tablet pc’s, blame it on the boogie.

How new technology affects our way of living.

new techLast week we talked about our weekly topic and saw how everyone can have his/her own opinion about almost everything. It is mostly because we live in a society where we have a lot of information available on the internet.

Sometimes we don't pay attention to how fast new technologies are changing our way of living and we don't stop and imagine how things will be in the future.

However, some people think about it and imagine new devices that they will be essential parts of our life in the future. Of course, none of us can imagine them.

Next day we are going to debate about New Technologies which have negative as well as positive aspects. Meanwhile, I recommend you to listen to Tom Uglow, who imagine “an Internet without screens might look like this”. Of course, his talk is in the kind side of the subject. Tom will be our virtual guest at our next meeting.

See you on Wednesday 28th October at the school library at 21:30 PM
