We can’t say technology is unnecessary anymore. It’s a vital component part of our work, education, hobbies and relationships. There’s no escaping it.
I love the ‘technology just is, like air’ concept. Brings to mind the notion that fish don’t see the water they swim in. We have reached a turning point where tech is so deeply embedded in our culture, like language, clothing, and buildings before it, that its role is as central as those, and now perhaps more so.
