    Modern conveniances!

    Do you think that with all the new modern conveniences, like computer games and stuff, we are loosing contact with our fellow humans, or that thanks to modern conveniences, like the internet and phones and modern art like films, paintings and stuff, we are actually having more human contact than before!
    I tink we have more contact than ever!

    i think now we have so many different ways to communicate that we are able to get to know other people in different parts of the world. I would never met the cool people on AO if it wasn't for the interent!!!!

    Plus i use my mobile so much that i can't live without it!! Technology has just become such a key thing in my life that i don't think i could live without it!!

    Woot post 600!!

    There are parts of me saying that we're losing contacts and gaining contacts. I know for me, it helped me get freinds. But, I still need to get more freinds near where I live. Very lonely over here.

    A big thanks to Renn for the sig! THANK YOU!

    Re: Modern conveniances!

    We're losing social contact, like instead of going out and actually meeting people we end up meeting people on the net which you cannot see. It is because of new ways of communicating the world seems to have become smaller thus a global village.

    Its great that we can meet new people so much easily but its an double edge sword. Some people might end up being "shut in's". Individuals that doesn't go out, and it seems people loses the ability to use the telephone. Instead of using the phone they will wait for until you log on to msn.

    Yes, I have experience with that. My friend would "omg where the hell were you?! I needed to tell you what we're doing tomorrow." I would reply "umm ever heard of a telephone?"

    it's an advantage and a disadvantage in every way. with technology we are evolving in many different ways. Humans progress and we never stop. It's like trying to stop a train with your bare hands.

    We loose something and gain something. An equvelant Trade. An eye for an eye.

    Yes and no.

    We are loosing contact with fellow humans beings. For example, instead of actually seeing them instead we simply send a sms on a mobile phone, To say Happy Birthday, Merry x-mas or to dump a b/f g/f. What happened to actually seeing them face to face to say these things, or even giving them a phone call and talking to them would be ok.

    But no, because it keeps us in contact. I'm in contact all the time ( thanks to msn) with friends who have moved away and friend from old schools i used to go to. If it wasn't for the internet, I would never hear from them again! I'm meeting and learning about cultures overseas by talking to people, it's great! It makes life so much easier in every aspect!
