What will the future bring?

Dennis DiedeRelationships:

In today's high-technology world, being connected to other people who you care about has become incredibly simple and instant. When I was young I had three basic ways to interact with my friends, family and business contacts. 1) Travel to them or 2) Send them a letter or package or 3) Call them on the phone.

Now, with computers, tablets, cell phones connected to everything and everyone - all we have to do is push a button and be instantly in contact with anyone, anywhere.

The big question yet to be answered is how does these technological marvels affect the quality of our  relationships. Do we substitute texting, emailing, Tweeting and Facebook for a face to face conversation? Each of us need to answer this question in the context of our own lives. But, I would suggest that, as always, balance is the most important consideration. 

We have all heard horror stories of people Addicted to their devices to the point that they shut out the real world. Probably the most disturbing example in my mind is watching someone walking down the street typing on a cell phone or tablet, oblivious to the potential dangers right in front of them. I have actually seen people walking into trees, into traffic and one guy who fell into an open manhole.

I guess the largest issue is our individual level of awareness or our world. As a wise man once said, "It does not cost anything to pay attention."
