    Is Technology Limiting Creativity?

    Is Technology Limiting Creativity?

    As of the date of publication, I stand as 18 years young. As an individual who has been immersed in the world of technology since birth, one may think that modern technology has no negative implications on society. However, the questions revolving around me have usually been if the future generations will lose sight of what to create, opposed to what has been created for us. Is it a tool to help us expand ourselves? As theorized by the late Canadian professor and philosopher, Marshall McLuhan, technology is but an extension of some form of human quality. This can be applied to the wheel as an extension of our feet, a book being the extension of our thoughts or social media as an extension of our voice. However, some believe that the rapid growth of technology has led ourselves to become dependant on it. To dispute the creativity of wonderful artists who use modern technology as a platform would be pure ignorance, but what of those who choose to only live vicariously through those who act, experiencing their creations instead of creating themselves?

    Pulling Rank: The Power of the Engineering Mind Through Capitalism Listed from Planes in the Sky to Smartphones in Hand

    Think about cars being bought. Do most consumers know where their catalytic converter is or its function? If the answer is no, there’s good reason for that. It is because the buyer didn’t purchase the vehicle to be an expert on exhaust systems. He or she wanted to purchase a car or truck to get around places and to haul precious cargo. The dollars that they plunked down in order to obtain a vehicle stand as the factor that permits them to go to a mechanic if they ever run into any problems. Most people are too busy worrying about the bills they must pay, the parents and or children that they must provide for (if the first case is worthy of it) and any other expenses that might arise.
