I am someone who prefers writing with a pen on a paper... I am also someone who prefers to type my thoughts.... Basically I am a confused person...
The other day I was just putting a few thoughts on my computer (which is synced to my sky drive entirely) and a thought just popped up.... What if someday sky drive decides to discontinue its services or if my computer breathes it's last... Willl my thoughts be lost forever??
Today we are so much in sync with the digital world that we couldn't do a day without it. Imagine not having google to check every single thing you need to know or not having social networking websites to let the world know that what you are upto. I personally cannot imagine such a day.
We are not just dependent but we also trust it so much that instead of having physical bits and pieces of our lives, we have it all together on a chip... Be it on a PC or a tab or even a phone.
A world that had been in origin only since the past 15 years today has the control of our lives. The revolution that we talk of knows much more about us even more than our family and friends.
Multi billion dollar companies are incharge of our lives or better put they run our lives for us. What if someday they decide that the business of ruling our lives is not very profitable and may be they should either shut down or merge with someone or some entirely new concept
If someday google decides that they will charge for every search or if the servers of social networking websites either fail or get hacked...
Will our life break into bits and pieces that we will never be able to recover or will some superman come to ensure that no revolution breaks our life like that??
In comparison to this if I reflect over the lives of our ancestors... Their social networks or their search engines, etc, were all in black and white in the form of encyclopaedias, diaries, letters, etc.
All these modes though time consuming ensured that they were in control of thei own lives and no third party decisions effected it or their lives in any manner compared to ours that is entirely dependent on third parties.
This thought though provoking gave me little or no answers.
What do you think?????
