We are still fathoming this.
The internet has been around for three decades and change is happening faster than ever to the point that it is as terrifying as much as it is thrilling.
Phones are more than a daily accessory. There is an extraordinary level of dependency on them for how we operate and behave on a daily basis.
There have been tremendous pitfalls along the way, consequences that could be considered dystopian and that have affected our physical and mental well-being.
As we move into the 3rd decade of the 21st century, there will be further developments and one thing we can do is evaluate what’s important.
For instance, are we using social media as a means to connect, or are we using it for status, are we a product?
How do we spend our time with technology. Are we learning, gathering use information or engaging in politics of hate and doom scrolling?
We must endeavour to have control over use of technology and ensure that it’s not the technology that is controlling us.
