Random Quotes 230#



Once, they said that computers would spell the end of the world, the end of mankind as we know it, that robots would lead the way forwards with not just digital technology, but everything … perhaps all that was meant was that as people, we would simply become forgotten, we would become automated, robotized and brutalized – that our social language would not just be lost beneath the waves of binary, but classed as unnecessary and if that is the case, then yes, the age of the Internet does indeed dehumanise us.

Rory Matier

Social media is an amazing tool, but it’s really the face-to-face interaction that makes a long-term impact.

Felicia Day

We’re losing social skills, the human interaction skills, how to read a person’s mood, to read their body language, how to be patient until the moment is right to make or press a point. Too much exclusive use of electronic information dehumanises what is a very, very important part of community life and living together.

  1. Yes, maybe we are. But the flip side of the coin is that without face to face interactions, we can get better understanding of the psyche of the other person, that is if the other person is willing to share their inner self. The anonymity provides the perfect platform.

        1. Yes it would, but that is the way our world is heading, and society cannot see it just yet, but give it a time, and people will see this eventuality for themselves.

          It’s coming.

          Over here in the Uk , we are losing the High Street, which l don’t know the American equivalent, but where the shops are in a street, not a shopping centre or Mall, but streets with shops. people are preferring to shop online, it’s easier and convenient to many people’s lives and so many retailers are closing down due to lost sales. people are losing their jobs to computers = already losing engagement and interaction.

          So it’s happening in other ways now.

          1. Yes, I can see where you are coming from. I saw this documentary that how they modernized the London stock exchange with so much money and time spent on the renovation and it is now mostly empty of people, as the bulk of trading is taking place online.

    1. Yes it does, but there will come a time, when people will only be using the platforms to communicate – indeed that in many respects is happening now 🙂
