Day 181 When Technology Is Your Friend

Sometimes I take technology for granted. But sometimes I’m very thankful. For example, if technology is working this post will go through without me being here to specifically work on it because of the great function of scheduling. It’s interesting though that sometimes, technology also holds us back. How many simple skills are forgot because technology replaces them. Consider handwriting vs typing. I know a lot of times it would take me lots more time to write things by hand, in fact my handwriting is a lot worse than it used to be. Yet my handwriting has never been that good, so typing saves me time and if people are trying to read what I wrote it’s probably easier for them to read what I typed. Additionally, just through this medium more people can read what I’m writing than if I had to write things by hand. Just some random thoughts.
