"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Virtual games verses real games, cut and paste instead of writing skill, voice generating softwares

    before you can answer to this question, you have to ask yourself - what reality is?

    Every coin have two faces it's only depend on us how we take it. Actually because of internet we can learn a lot of things which could be impossible for us before this. Now because of the TECHNOLOGY we are here on this form to discuss about something, but as i said before it also have adverse effects kids are getting involve in some unusual stuff which are making them introvert and killing their creativity.

    I do agree technology is killing the creativity. Now a days everything is software generated. It is reduction of Manpower and people are dependent on Machines. Technology is good but i think somewhere its going in a wrong direction people are using technology in a negative way.

    I would like to share a simple example. When we try to calculate some easy arithmatic, we tend to use our brain, when it comes with practice we learn some manual methods to find the solution. Those who are using calculators would never figure out their own methods to solve simple problems even.

  • Even for calculating simple arithmetic we need calculators. There is no way to reckon our own method of solving at least simple problems. Yes we are killing creativity.

    I can't believe how few people seem capable of simple arithmetic without a calculator. I usually work out sums in my head, or worst case scenario, scribble on the back of an envelope.

    I think that technology is result of human creativity and it has help us in a daily living.

    I think people should not forget that they have a brain and not rely too heavily on technology all the time. When it's not there for some reason, it's important that you can manage somehow without it.

    My opinion it is depend of human. Computer, network, comfort are dimension who may slackness, I know we likes comfort, we like don't think (sometimes of course) but if you can't work at themselves you may lost very important thing, your personality (sense of humour, creativity, thinking etc.). So we should use technology carefully.
    Btw.: I am computer/technology freak ;)
