Technology Can Bridge And Create Distance – Brian’s Blog
If you have followed my blogs at all you know that I have a love/hate relationship with technology. I think that it makes many things in our lives better but also makes many things worse. I feel technology has the ability to make people who are a distance apart closer, but if not used properly, can make people who are close more distant.
We can now chat with people from anywhere in the world and make it so it is like they are in the room with us, yet so often those who are physically in the room with us are so distracted by their devices that they seem miles away. It is now too easy to avoid seeing people and think that just a text or email will be enough to keep in touch. If people are close, get close to them and leave the devices to bridge the distance.
