Oh hello, Technology. I’m so glad you’re here.
Pardon me, but would you rescue me from living my life? I could really use a break. It’s really tough out here, and I’d like to use you to make it easier.
Would you tell me a story as I go to sleep? (Something with lots of sound and pictures.)
Would you keep me company while I stand in line for coffee? (Send me notifications or help me lose myself in a game.)
Would you answer my questions before I try logically to consider an answer?
When I’m lonely would you help me feel connected? No, no! I don’t want to Skype with a real person; I’m not willing to be authentically vulnerable. Would you help me feel connected through a social network where I don’t need to show my ugly side?
Thanks Technology. I am much obliged to you.
