WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT TECHNOLOGY TODAY?

I think there is a lot of good and a lot of bad at the same time. I find it overwhelming and rapidly changing, sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst.

 

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


I would change how much time we spend on our devices, and I’d get rid of dating apps. I don’t want technology to disconnect us from one another even though the presumed aim is to keep us connected. 

 

WHAT IS THE DEVELOPMENT THAT YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST?

I think there is a lot of technology that does good for the world, helping to deliver medication in third world countries for example, and also technology that is working towards a cleaner and greener planet. These kind of developments that can further help the world are the ones I look forward to the most.

 

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

Everything. Meeting people in person as opposed to on tinder, getting to know someone through conversation and not by Googling them. Oh, and I’d want to bring back cassette tapes.
