Are We There Yet?

Children nowadays have grown accustomed to immediacy; they simply click on a button and something immediately happens!

Long gone are the days when if you wanted to listen to a specific song you had to fast forward or rewind a cassette, a process that could take a couple of minutes until the exact start of the song was found...

#Reading comic books, actually holding a book made of thin paper and handle it with care so that the pages didn't fall out and using proper imagination to fill in the action gaps between the panels is also a thing of the past.

While sitting down and play board games face-to-face with real friends and actually have a great time doing it has been poorly replaced by a #games console, and 'friends' you will never meet...

Doing something that takes time, having the patience to wait for things to happen and having great face-to-face conversations were marvellous things to have while growing up. With these foundations I can truly appreciate the way #technology has made our lives easier, but not always better!

The need for immediacy that today's children have, and their lack of patience makes me wonder how society will be like in thirty years’ time… What do you think about this? Should we have a 'back to basics' week without (or with little) technology?
