When I wasn’t working!
They say the other side is always greener. And so it is!!
When I wasn’t working, I would have given a limb to be connected all the time. It was fascinating to be amidst so much that was happening around; the buzzing and the beeping and staying connected with friends and colleagues.
Okay, but once I did get back to work from a prolonged hiatus, I realized that sometimes I wanted to get away from all humdrum.
But then on vacations, I would dread being isolated. So I was getting used to being connected all the time. I wanted action all the time in my life and I knew that even though I felt like throwing down the computer form the fifteenth floor felt that I lived in, I could not live without being digitally connected for more than a few days.
Digital fasting, move on; it is not for me.
Here is how incredibly technology has changed and is continually changing our lives.
- The telecommunication:
This has changed lives; literally been saving lives if I can say. I have known how doctors connect with their patients remotely and help them with Medicare over the phone and I cannot help but lift my head and tilt it for technology!
- Reading devices!
Can you even imagine a substitute for books?
Reading is so rudimentary and when I first saw my kindle backlight, I almost immediately fell head over heels!!
- Augmented reality:
Research and statistics would have been so different if it were not for the virtual and augmented reality that we have as a boon from technological progress. I am zapped when the technologists say that it is only the tip of the iceberg!!
- Everything smart eh:
Smartphones, smart network, and smart grids, everything small and tiny but smart has replaced the bulky and the unpotable. Check how your phone now doubles up as your minicomputer!
- Smart bikes:
Electric bikes and motorized vehicles are your best bet in transportation. Check out https://www.motorizedrides.com to know how you can be mobile and save money yet not leaving any carbon footprint at all!
