It appears to this author, that news from the technological frontiers is becoming more frequent and louder with each passing day. CEOs attend fairs where waiting crowds gasp, clap and cheer euphorically of stories of the latest, greatest elixirs to be found in their latest apps to change the world.
We have been here before, haven’t we? Technology has changed human life throughout history – the printing press, the combustion engine – however are we now on the precipice of it eclipsing human life?
Will this technology make our lives easier, or just emptier? Can life become too easy? Am I invited and welcomed in this utopian future world? And once we automated everything, what exactly will we all do?
I am neither a Luddite or Technophile, however as the journey unfolds this may be subject to change.
