For this next topic of BlogFEST 2012, the question was posed if technology has made traveling easier…let’s see:
- Airport Security essentially didn’t exist when I was younger. Now, because of advances in technology (digital or otherwise), terrorism has increased and slowed down travel (e.g. multi-layered airport security, etc.).
- With advances in the cellphone industry, simple use phones have now turned into smartphones which many people have become so addicted to they can’t seem to shut them off. When was the last time you connected with someone for real instead of LOL’ing?
Don’t get me wrong, I am all for technology and have my fair share of “toys”, but for the most part, they are just that…toys. I probably have one of the last remaining cellphones where all I can do is make a call. Although I have just found out that it can send/receive texts as well. While I have attempted to use this feature, it’s strictly for work purposes only, not to find out where my friends are meeting after work.
With advances in technology comes great responsibility. (Wait! Is that the right line?!?!) Let’s face it, these technological advances have affected just more than travel. It’s how we use these advances that will determine their positive or negative impact on each of us.
Wishing you moments of technological fun!
