Technology and I13164479_10154965658849062_6783624640798063676_n

I have just been reading an interesting article (Technology destroys people and places. I’m rejecting it by

OK so every now and then we need to switch off (no pun intended) but I found that the more I would just sit and watch TV whilst browsing my phone, the more I disconnected with the real world I became and disappointed in myself that I did not do any of the things I promised myself with my career change. Since reading this article I have decided that I am going to stop doing this. I will go home, switch on radio 6 or a good album, and DO something.

As Mark Boyle points out, the world of technology is destroying our relationships. Our relationship with nature (the less we are out in it the less we value it), relationships with each other (needs no explanation – I saw it all the time at the pub where people were more interested in their phones than in conversation) and with our own selves.

Being the Information and Communication Lead here at WCEN I cannot obviously completely disconnect myself from the digital world (and I wouldn’t want to!) but I think it is time to take a step back. A serious step back. I don’t want to look back on my life and regret I did not DO more and no longer take pleasure in the simple things in life. So my 19th December resolution is to ensure I step back from the phone and TV and integrate myself back into the REAL world.
