    No, I don't regret technology advancing globally. But I do wonder what the implications will be for the future. For example, I wonder what the impact on the educational arena will be. There have been so many changes already. It will be interesting to see. One thing I like is how we can get personal accounts of what is actually happening in the world, for the most part, and how it may or may not contradict with news reports. One thing I like a lot is being able to converse with people around the world.

    I work in Technology, and it has treated me pretty well.  So, no regrets.

    Social technology is ruining the human interaction.  There is no way to read someone without a face to face.  Soon everything will be done via email, video chat, and some sort of social networking.  I would say it is really decreasing professional work.  People are getting lazier and lazier.  I work 55 hours a week no matter what.  People I know think 20 hours is too much to work in a week. 

    I work in technology and people are going to have to catch up because it is not going away.

    My opinion is, technology helps creating effective opportunity. We can never reduce professional workers, they can practice using technology and that expands industry in return.

    Whilst technology does have the effect of reducing certain types of jobs available, there isn't a heavy effect on "professional work," in tends to be the low level manufacturing jobs, as processes are becoming automated. And new technology creates new jobs. So it balances itself out. Sadly the people who lose their jobs in the areas that technology is affecting generally aren't skilled or qualified for the new jobs being created.

    Technological advancement is inevitable anyway, I regret the loss of jobs but there's not really anything I can do about that. I guess the argument is whether technology in general is improving lives or destroying them. It's certainly helping millions of people, but it's also having some negative effects on millions more.

    Technology creates new jobs while also eliminating old ones. Many people have to turn to education and training to help them find new jobs after they've been replaced by a machine.  Eventually, it will probably be impossible to get a job without specific training or education. The problem isn't the technology itself, its the 'technological divide' that these new technologies create. As our world becomes more complicated and more intertwined, specialization will become necessary to succeed. It's part of the reason why getting a college education today is much more important than it was 20 years ago.

    The Luddites tried to fight the advancement of technology.  It didn't work.  How many blacksmith's and stone masons do we have around today?   On the other hand, the new trade of auto-mechanic came in.

    There has always been change but now it is very rapid.  Craftsmanship dwindles away - that's why people by Chippendale Furniture - to be replaced by mass production.  But even the poorest of the 'working class or blue collar workers' in Western societies have more creature comforts than medieval kings.    And even President Abraham Lincoln didn't have an electric refrigerator or personal computer.

    Is technology creating more jobs or reducing professional work?   Depends on the profession.
