Maybe what I meant in the ZAMM post by the verb 'facebooking' wasn't only meant for the internet, maybe it was meant for every kind of technology or object surrounding us (by that I mean from the internet, to the car we own, to the shoes we wear). I feel like technologie is too big of a part in our lives comparing to the quality of the relationship with have with it. Technologie is all around us, and we're damn scared of it. It's too cold, without life.Now we have 2 techiques to fix that. Avoid technology or improve our relationship. The first technique is superficial and only temporary. I've seen people talking about how books are better then movies, however books are still technologie.
So now let's talk about the second option wich is working on the problem on a more fundamental level. Let's surround technologie with ourselves, instead of the other way around. When was the last time we painted on our shoes, wrote in the book we are reading, fixed our own washing machine. We don't do that, we're scared of it, we have to much respect for technology, always forgetting that it's actually not that complicated. And when their is respect, their almost always fear. I remeber my aunt telling me that the youth is way better with computer then before, but we have no clue how to write codes and create programs. The basic you know. That's why we are so scared of it, because we don't know what's inside of it. So if we do a metaphor between every type of technology and a computer, let's break open our computer, look inside, ask us what every part does, fix it, break it, change its color, add something to it. So now we wont be scared of touching our computer, because now the computer is part of us, its listening to what we say, it has nothing over us, even if it can do operations and work better and faster. But that's what we created it for, no?
