Nick Bilton has written a poignant piece about the complexities of making choices in our use of technology. He explores using social media as a way to remember those we have lost, some of the downsides reported in the news and the personal choices we can make. So often we look at the dangers of technology for a balanced mind here on the Still Web, it is balancing to share a positive perspective. He concludes: “So does the good outweigh the bad? For me, yes. And I think it will in the future too, as newer technologies force us to grapple with even bigger ethical quandaries.” We hope the future he envisages obtains for us all.
A worthwhile heart warming read for today.
