Changes in Code
Technology has provided so many opportunities for us to connect. Technology has provided us the opportunity to learn.
As someone who met their spouse online, I can attest, there are many benefits in regards to technology; however, with these improvements, there have also been declines.
Relationships have diminished, people have become divided and in some cases, destroyed. People argue, fight, bully and make inaccurate assumptions about one another. Reputations, bank accounts and much more have been wiped away and/or ruined.
What about continued distractions as well?
Many of us have heard that we are here to connect. If that’s truly the case then how much does technology help us do that? Of course, in some ways it is the mode in which we can connect and yet a teenage boy playing video games online with his friends, is he connecting more or less? Has he traded his real life for a virtual one? Real relationships for virtual ones? And how real are virtual relationships?
