re: If itís not an iPad, is Vanity Fair?

Interesting but also a little sad, especially if you're getting older now. The new technology forces us to adapt to new changes in living style. We have no choice and the planet won't stop even though you stand still! It brings along goods and bads to our culture. One thing quite obvious is that the younger generation usually can do good hand-writing. I always found people who is 20 years younger than me can't write nice letters (Chinese especially) and sometimes their hand-writing are just like a kid. The kindergarten teacher of my 3-years old daughter writes just like my 6-years old daughter! Is it sad?

These are very useful technology and people shuold employ them. However, people should also have desire to accomplish some real goals with this new technologies. If you have lost direction just to use this new technology, the result are quite detrimental.

I am reminded every time we have a power outage and the accompanying loss of Internet just how much I (we) depend on the connectedness of life. Just as much as I would not want to give up email, cell phone, Internet searching, I still enjoy direct face to face communication (no Skype doesn't count). All too often, emails which lack the verbal clues that face to face communication entails cause misunderstandings and even hard feelings. With all the technology strides, face to face is still the most rich means of interaction we can employ.

Technology brings convenience and makes our life easier one way or the other. It also changes our perspective of life. It surely will affect the "freshman". In the 70's, only a few people have the privileges to access computers. 2 of these people have the vision to bring computers to everyone. They succeed. Baby born in the 80's grow up with computer. In the 90's, Internet changes our information flow, enriching our life. A group of young entrepreneurs see an opportunity to connect people better. They founded social network. Now, these babies grow up with mobile Internet and better man machine interaction. Who knows what the new perspective will lead us to.
