    Hey zuhr-akb....
    I think about this often and it IS bothersome to me.  I think we do rely too much on technology and I wonder in my mind where is this going to end.  I feel like it is TOO much. Things aren't personal anymore.. we have a machine to do everything for us.  Really kind of scary when I think about it.  I think simplicity brings peace.. and there is nothing simple about technology.  Don't get me wrong- I think cell phones, computers etc are great but I just think they keep going to far with things and everything seems okay right now but I do see huge potential for harm in this.

    I agree with Jaime.

    It's plain to see it's causing harm. Physical harm to the people who use it and harm to the solidarity of society. I can only imagine how many people have died in car accidents because they were talking or texting on their phones. Eyesight from looking at computer screens all day has diminished. Also, there is a lack of physical activity because a lot of people are consumed by these electronics, especially computers. You cannot help but notice how fast time flies when you're watching youtube videos, browsing facebook, or something similar. Technology is turning us into zombies but it does have its benefits as well.

    I believe if we didn't have so much to do in our own home (because the possibilities are endless with a computer that is connected to the internet) people would spend more time with their friends, family, and community. Volunteerism is practically non-existent compared to statistics in the past and I wonder if this is to blame.

    Let's not blame the thermometer for the temperature. Technology doesn't harm humanity. The use of it, however...
    If anything, it's the way people use technology that may be harmful.

    It depends on how to see this. If we think positively, no harm to humanity, growing technology will cause human progress.

    We live in a society where technology is everywhere we go and in everything we do. It has become a way of life for many of us. It is so convenient it is now an inconvenience to avoid. I recently wrote a hub about how technology has affected us as a society … se-society
