"I like paper books and physical things - it would be a shame if everything was digitalized. It doesn't feel the same."

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT TECHNOLOGY TODAY?

Technology is a part of the community. People can share ideas, information, different points of view and everything through the evolving digital age. I think it's a large part of democratizing life and keeping people connected.

 

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

A big machine that would regulate the world’s climate and stop people from depleting the world of all its resources. Oh, and that creates clean reusable energy. One can dream!

 

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

The need to document everything. There needs to be a balance or else it'll ruin the quality of life.

 

WHAT IS A DEVELOPMENT YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST?

Anything involving making travel easier, count me in.
