Tycoonism “Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.”

August 18, 2009

With all the barrage of information we receive everyday, there is no doubt, things can get a little confusing.  What happens when we receive too much information?  With the onset of social media, we have become social princes and princesses all of a sudden.  In between Face Book, Twitter, blogging, news and magazine, not to mention the regular phone and SMS, information can get to the other send faster compared to lets say 20 years ago.

We need food, we call for food delivery.  We need to speak to someone, the mobile phone is there with a myriad of ways to send and receive information, MMS, SMS, through social networks you name it, it is there.  Now how important are these avenues to us?  These kind of telecommunication wsn’t here 20 years ago or 50 years ago, but how did they survive?

Why is it that whenever we leave our houses, we feel for our mobile phones first?  What happens if we leave the ever present Black Berry, iPhone or Nokia at home or some place else?  We fuss and squirm like these machines are part of us and we are born with the phone naturally attached to our limbs.

What has happened to us?  Why have we become slaves of technology, no longer functional without them?  What has happened to simplicity?  What happened to solitude?  Why is it that we are suddenly within reach from every corner of the world?  Is this good at all?  What kind of impact has technology been to our lives.

These things are aids and nothing but.  It make life easier for us and convenient, but they are not necessary.  You hear me, not a necessity.  Think back and list the most important thing in the world for you…

List it and keep it… that what makes the world go around…

    You couldn’t be more correct. I have a cell phone but don’t use like I see everyone else use theirs – like we’re computers from Borg! :). I refuse to be a slave to technology. You’re correct it is a convenience and that is how I utilize it. Solitude, silence allows one to think.
