The evolution of technology
The advancement of technology will be the death of us or rather the end of the human race as we know ourselves….
The more we become a global village, the more alike we become and the less individual we are….
Growing up, we didn’t watch much TV. The television station only broadcasted for a few hours starting at 3pm and the main news bulletin at 8pm followed by a late prime time movie or show and TV ended by 10pm. Before a movie started a warning came up advising what sort of age restrictions the movie had and if it was no under 18 then we knew it was off to bed we went, even if it was not a school night.
We played outside, and got holes in our clothes the hard way, in the playground, falling from swings, trees, rooftops, fortunately for me, I never broke anything, but I still have scars to show for it. When there was a telephone call and it was for you, you answered it right there in the living room the only privacy you got was what the length of the phone cable allowed. You finished your call and everyone would be looking; waiting for you to spill the beans, so who was that and what was that all about…… You did not get up and walk away from your family and friends like you discussing a clandestine affair.
The most mischief I got into was stealing my brother’s wire model toy car….
I was shocked to learn that Toys “R” US is going bankrupt. I don’t think they had a branch in Zimbabwe but their toys made their way into our homes, hearts and childhood memories. Why are they bankrupt? Who knows why exactly; debts, the rise of online shopping and I would hazard a guess; that kids want the latest version smart phones, portable multimedia players, game consoles, laptops and would rather play with these gadgets than go outside and play with others.
The next generation is slowly becoming antisocial hanging out with virtual friends than real people.
The internet never sleeps and anytime you say good night to the real world and log in to your night mode settings; whats on your mind?
Trolling in the deep, you do it for the likes. You ridicule someone’s opinion, you share your unpopular opinion and defend it with a vengeance, screenshots and memes.
“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
The internet is a mask, it never sleeps and it never forgets
We gladly wear this mask because beneath it, we don’t exist
Give me an internet connection and phone or laptop and I am a warrior championing cause breaking the internet and taking names…
They tell you not to objectify people but the internet makes us all objectionable packaged into little likes retweets faves and hastags.
