I came across this question in some reading I was doing and it made me stop and think. With computers and instant access to the Internet via smart phones and tablets, has the perception of "real life" changed? Instead of going and doing things out in the world, more are relying on the "world wide web". Interesting thought to ponder.....

Well said, Don, and spot on. I'm thinking that a lot of natural creativity and innovation is going to be lacking in the world when the present generation of kids grow up and the present 'older generation' has 'Gone to God.'
I agree with Don. Technology offers us a wider scope of opportunity in many educational, entertainment and research areas but limits our social interactions with reality. I would love to discuss issues in person instead of online.
In depth answer, Jim. I suspect that Technology, especially the Web, is increasing our academic knowledge but narrowing our ability to feel. Feelings and the resultant wisdom they bring comes from REAL experience, not pictures and words on a PC.
