Growing Up in a World of Information Overload
As I was working in my freelance editor/writer job today for a client I came across this interesting video that was shown at Sony's annual shareholder's meeting last year. I was struck not only by the serendipity of how the content of this video puts some amazing context to my previous post about video addiction—the rate of increase of technology in our lives is astoundingly presented in this video—but also about the meaning of technology in our adult lives. The video ends with the question, "So what does it all mean?"
To me, it means that we need to increase our human abilities to discern truth from fiction, marketing hype and political doubletalk from meaningful conversation, and to determine how all people can best use technology instead of a few people using technology to manage everyone else. After viewing this, what does it all mean to you?
