Do you think the world was better off before the days of computer technology?
I mean, jobs are being taken away because they are being done by computers but on the other hand, we now have access to all kinds of free learning experiences. Do you think the world was better before or after the age of computers?
Before, of course! People don't communicate, they text. Spelling skills gone by the wayside due to texting shorthand.
I think that it.opens up a lot of opportunities and On the other hand,it makes Life more sheltered people don't get out as much
I tend to think it is all relative. The days before computers cannot be really compared to the days after the computer as we have not really seen a transition away from computers. We may be able to make that comparison if we delineate the age of computers with its sciences internally or with a micro view. One may ask that question within the large question - macro view, or "Do you think the world was better off before the days of smart phones, laptops, desktops, or a calculator seeking transitions. So, I guess one would have to define 'days of computer technology' to adequately answer.
You make a very good point. My question was kind of vague.
A very interesting question. Computers and the science of computers are very distinct from each other especially with language. The first computer historically occurs 1939. Disney incorporated computers with the movie phenomena Fantasia the year 1940
The world was better off before computer technology but on the other hand the computer technology teaches us a lot of things.
Before the age of computer, people used to talk face to face and eat on the table as a family, children played on the playground, people used to write letters, people used papers to write things down, people used bus tickets for use on the buses for fares, people buy things and take it to a counter to pay, people used to read newspapers and magazines, children learn proper spelling or English grammar at school, people do a lot of walking, exercising, swimming, and socialising, and there is sense of family togetherness but all these had changed after computer technology was introduced, people don't talk face to face now-they chat on Facebook, they text or Skype each other, children get stuck in their bedrooms playing computer games, parents worry about what their children are up to on the internet all the time, people don't write letters they email each other, people even don't read the newspapers or magazines-they read the kindle, people don't walk anymore-they get stuck in front of their desk with their computers talking to strangers on the internet people they don't even know. With all the negative points about computers, I think I prefer life without computer. Life is more meaningful then.
I believe we have the power to make it better. If we have more time because of the smart technology in our hand, if we utilize that time in a manner to truly connect with people, we can make the world a better place.
Learning that we are all more similar than different is one of the wonders of technology.
Learning to connect with others and truly interact and engage is the second step.
The ultimate step, but of course, is simple - world peace.
Predicting the weather was better. Yet many are predicting some cataclismic disaster that has been predicted way before the onset of the computers they use today and they cannot even get the next day's weather right. New is not always better.
Not everyone has a computer, or the internet, or cell phones. Libraries will always exist and so will books...just look at all the writers who are writing or written books here on Hubpages.
definitely! Before computer was born, humans spend more time on outdoor activities and eating healthy. Now with computers and gadgets, teen and kids are lazy to move
