technology a good thing?
It's niether good nor bad. It is. Those how develop and use it, on the other hand?? Well that is a different story.
As has been said of many nouns, both concrete and abstract, "Technology is a good servant and a bad master."
It's hard for me to think of technology in terms of "good" and "bad". It's neutral.
Hey, if there wasn't technology, I wouldn't be answering this email.
Most of the time, yes -- when it leads to medical breakthroughs, improved communication, an easier life, or good jobs. No, when it involves weapons of mass destruction.
It depends on the ethical and moral values behind the technology. For example, an personal computer is a good thing because it helps educate students. Technology is bad when it is used for something evil, like building atomic bombs or other nuclear weapons.
It's neither good nor bad. It just is. It's what we do with it that's improtant. I love it.
Without it we wouldn't be reading or responding to these questions. Sure it's a good thing.
It would be pretty hypocritical to say no-- I use technology for so much. Of course I suppose that there are people who might take it to far.
In general, probably not. Although sure, it saves lives, i mean, i really think nature designed us as a race not to live so long :P Technology in general makes our lives easier, but i think that it has really worsened the planet as a whole.
Yes and No. Technology
has made things faster and more convienient. It has helped locate people
and form lines of communication between countries. It has also threatened
to destroy the world. It seems like the more information we aquire, the
crazies out there have more and improved ways of
Yes, as I sit here writing this email with my clothes in the washing machine, the dishes in the dishwasher, and my dinner in the oven.
I'm not sure I understand this question... or rather, understand why it would be asked. How is it NOT a good thing?
Generally yes. However, it's subject to the same moral considerations as all other aspects of human action and development.
Besides being biased because I'm studying physics, I have to say that that's a silly question. Technology brought you both the computer and the internet, through which we can talk. If you have kids, technology lowered the infant mortality rate to about .006%. I just talked to my friend who found out today that she has strep throat, and technology is keeping her alive.
Most of the time it's good, but I can see how sometimes it's a detriment to society.
yes and no im undecided
Yes...it helps to save lives.
On the whole, I think it is. I think we are a little too dependent on it, though.
Depends on who uses it, and how they use it.
