27. Are we digital dumbies?

I don’t think I’ve met a single person who says they’re happy managing the technology pace,” says Tod Maffin, a Canadian expert on technology use.  “One of the problems with living in an ‘always on’ society is we perceive the need to always be on.”

I found this a really one-sided documentary. Not one positive thing to say about the internet and smart phones.  Full of questionable “evidence”, borders on fear-mongering. Some people react with fear in the face of new technologies–this is a good example of that.. Listen to Jesse Brown at TVO for a far more balanced view of the internet world.
