Will we use technology for good, or is a dystopian future on the horizon?

Every technology has its upside and its downside - even the stone ax. However, the good nearly always outweighs the bad. In the final analysis, common sense is the best defense against evildoers.

Perhaps some will used for good but I currently see it taking a part in the breakdown of our society in many ways.

I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to know anything about my life in 2025. I'll just take tomorrow thank you.

Digital life may look thus - but what will the world look like? To feed the maw of the tech industry's endless addiction to newer, better, smaller bigger, etc., we would have to be mining on other planets!

In 10 years this trendy stuff will be what the younger generation will deal with mostly. I'll just be pleased to have a nice meal, enjoy my family and friendships. I'll hope to have more good health than not if I'm still here. A walk in the daylight, a good book, music, and a comfortable bed to lay my head on.

Who cares - we may all be long gone by then - just enjoy today and be thankful for it.

I remember reading that computer literacy was the third massive change in human history ; after the discovery of agriculture, and writing. I was unable to fathom what that meant at the time and still seem to be “imagination challenged. Intriguing read.

In terms of technology and education, already, the effects have become evident. In NJ, standardized test scores have severly dropped in the area of Language Arts. In my district, 3rd graders overall, cannot list words using third place order.
We have gone back to pencil and paper in writing. Second graders have terrible handwriting, and even 5th graders cannot compose an introductory paragraph.Students of this age need to erase, cross out, etc. The computer does not allow for this.
I can go on and on...but, I am glad to see school systems made a mistake in pushing computers onto children into every facet of their education.

best sentence from the piece:

"The biggest impact will come from something we don't currently foresee. Stay alert!" Prensky warned.

As usual, we live on a danger planet. But, don't let the 'fear factors' override our ability to solve problems, create beauty, offer kindness, and form loving friendships.

Focus on the better possibilities while staying alert to the dangers.
Life on planet earth, ->

With a great deal of wisdom, perhaps we can still do some good around the world,
even if the less benevolent aspects of humanity still are lurking.
