I am driving home from work today and start eying my portable navigation system that I have in my car. I am realizing that even though these systems are helping us find, our way, we are becoming too dependent on them. Instead of truly learning how to drive to someplace new, we are just lemmings listening to instructions. Turn left in 200 feet. Are we getting dumber by relying on electronics? I believe we only get dumber if we don’t use technology as a tool, but as a way a life. We can enhance our lives with computers, but don’t be a slave to them.
