How technology has impacted communications in your life =)

Simple questions.

How has communications technology impacted your life.

For example how has email helped you contact your loved ones.
Effect of how iPods kept you tuned in.
TV keeping you informed

Etc...I just need peoples opinions...I won't use all but i'll be sure to mention or post a copy of my ISU.

Questions? Just ask.

Negative aspects are also very much welcome! Such opinions can include the substantial costs that come with the benfefits of such technological devices =).

Well, if it weren't for computers and IM, I probably wouldn't have the nice job I have now. A friend I rarely saw but always talk to on IM recommended me for it. If there was no IM, I doubt we'd really talk (or be friends).

Re: How technology has impacted communications in your life =)

It's most definitly internet that has had a huge impact. Many of my friends from Robotics, ISEF, and other national organizations can't see me on a regular basis, but we still want to communicate.

Another really cool device is the microwave. I really really like popcorn.

Re: How technology has impacted communications in your life =)

I think that technology has had many good effects in our communities, I have many aunts uncles cousins you name it from across that world. MSN, AIM and other programs are very useful where i can talk for hours on end and not be charged. E-mail also helps because they are in a different timezone, this way I can email them and they can respond in their own time.

There are many items of technology that are mind boggling and help in many ways including giving us jobs but there are also many downsides.

Now that we have so many ways of technology, they can be turned to the wrong hands. Anyone with an understanding of the piece could make something horrid like the atomic bomb type thing. Also in factories machinery replaces workers which means there are less workers and more pollution.

All in all we could fight this down to every point and there would be no right or wrong answer, its all about the opininons. In my opinion technology gets itself into a bad posistion then ruts itself out. Like many of the sicknesses we have are caused by pollution which is caused by technology and machinery, but then we create the flu shot for instance gets rid of the flu then the flu has been advanced by different particles in our air and it learns how to go around the flu shot they make another one. So really it is just a round-a-bout, the question is if you knew how many problems technology caused then would you stop it beforehand ?

To answer this question you need to think about how helpful and useful it is but then again think of all the problems that technology has allegedly caused.

Re: How technology has impacted communications in your life =)

[rant]I believe firmly that the most technologically we get advanced the better we are, only we need to be wise with what we build. Society never does well if they refuse to accept change, especially that that technology brings. Look at the chinese during all all of their dynasties, particularly Quig (Manchu) dynasty towards the end of their reign (1900s) they banned books and killed scholars, what happened? There was a revolution because they refused to accept change, same thing with the French, and many other societies.[/rant]

Some Communications I love:
-Any Phone Related Device
-Email and the Internet (all bow to CERN)
-Google (it does qualify doesn't it?)
-Many more
