What's Life Without Computer and Internet?

Updated on April 4, 2018

I cannot imagine any day passing by without myself wandering through the web, checking new e-mails, interacting in social networking sites, posting my blog or just simply surfing over. Computer is an effective tool for reminding me about pending tasks, for jotting down appointments, for making letters, for tracking down my expenses, monitoring my weight, my grocery check lists and so on and so forth. As the world changes, digital technology has created more and more impact to our everyday lives. Computers and internet has truly become an indispensable commodity for me. Needless to say that it has occupied more than half percentage of my half-active, half sedentary life, computer and internet being the next to my three basic needs. Silly it is, I have sceptically thought that it should be among the higher lines in my hierarchy of needs.

 

When making any document whether it be an expository write-up or just a plain correspondence, my brain works well when my fingers are striking the keyboard and words just come free flowingly as if bits of my brain are on my fingers. But, give me a pen and paper to write on, and it seems that ideas are clogged and my fingers are tied to translate the abstract picture into decipherable notes. Indeed I have found efficiency physically and mentally in typing what is in my mind rather than writing it using a pen. It may sound embarrassing that as I increase my typing speed, my handwriting gradually becomes as horrible as the handwriting of my pre-schooler!

The list of information and things you can do using the internet both on the personal and professional aspect is endless. Digital technology provides us with a means of communication, information, learning, interacting with people from any part of the globe, job search, career development, shopping, selling, and many endless possibilities.

Digital evolution is coming everyday and it is not surprising why the PC or the mobile phone with their amazing features which you have just purchased a month ago has become obsolete by now. I couldn’t imagine how we survived decades ago without the internet. Working in another country far from my family, I couldn’t imagine how expatriates working abroad before computer was invented, had survived the agony of being far from their love ones. Nowadays, e-mails, instant messenger and video chatting has been the ordinary tool for connecting people from different parts of the world. It is amazing to ponder how wireless gadgets can connect two different places many, many miles away from each other.

The pace of modern life is such that it is difficult to imagine how life would be without computer and internet. Innovations coming everyday are both amazing and scary in equal measures.

Becoming more and more dependent on my PC to fix my daily routines at home and to polish my work, I am apprehensive that one time I won't be able to survive without it. I am scared for the young generation that with their thirst to discover new things by exploring the world wide web, there is a very strong tendency that they be exploited and abused in the cyber world and their minds get corrupted by what they see by endless clicking of the mouse.

But looking on the positive side, I am amazed by the fact that computers and internet are like sharpening tools for my brain, and fuel to my fingers. It's like having a virtual bridge and high-powered vehicle that instantly connects me to the world and lets me be clarified regarding whatever question I have in mind and also drop my pearls of knowledge to share it with other people of whatever race.

For now, I would like to enjoy what technology has for me and for my advancement. The cost, I am not yet certain.
