WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT TECHNOLOGY TODAY?

I think technology is great, although I find myself relying on it a bit too much. I force myself to do things the old school way and am always happy whenever I lose or break my phone. Losing your phone is certainly freeing. It's almost like shedding a burden.

 

IF YOU COULD INVENT ANY PIECE OF TECHNOLOGY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I would invent a robot that took care of my animals while I was away! One that walked them, fed them, gave them water, and had vacuum and mop attachments to clean up messes!

 

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT HOW WE LIVE WITH TECHNOLOGY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

The media! I think the media is too visible in the sense that no one really gets to create their own digital world. We're always being bombarded with cues from the media which certainly influence the way we use technology and the internet.

 

IN THIS TIME OF RAPID CHANGE, IS THERE SOMETHING OLD SCHOOL YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE OF?

Yes! Pen and pencil!
