I chuckled at Sarah Goodyears article (link below) in which she bemoans our fate when we become overly dependent on our GPS devices and our technology. Goodyear affirms although technology is a great tool, perhaps when we allow ourselves to become overly dependent on it, we usurp our cognitive and existential prowess.
I love technology. I love what it can do for me. I love the increasing number of benefits and conveniences it provides. Simultaneously, I continually remind myself how dependent I am on technology.
This awareness drives me to three continual objectives:
1). To remain technologically astute so I can continue to benefit.
2). To build redundant backup systems to protect my data and my processes.
3). Never to fear doing something the old-fashioned way (such as pen and paper), because, after all . . . . they dont disappear when the power dies.
