Re: Robotized Humanity?

They really need to set up guidelines for using new technology. Maybe they have this for kids already, but adults need it more. It could include ettiquette (God knows), how to learn the new tech, etc.

As a very old school low tech guy, I was still working when they introduced an internal internet system into my very large hospital. While I was being praised by my boss for creative use of it (nothing technical, just giving out information) others were jamming it up with digital Christmas cards and "fun" enclosures to each other to the point that the system almost crashed.

Here's another story. As a professional presenter, who has performed for audiences of from two to two thousand, I always thought that Power Point had very limited utility, and was only supposed to be used in certain circumstances. But it was the new thing, and pretty soon no one could make a presentation without it (except me, although I learned how to use it so people would pay attention). When I went to someone else's presentation that used it, and asked for useful handouts, what did I get? Hard copy of their screens, which only vaguely summarized points, rather than provide real detailed information. I argued this point in a friendly way with many "robots" who just do what they are told, until the day The New Yorker magazine had an article that agreed with me---by none other than the designer of Power Point.
