The world is slowly going from concrete to digital jungle, as technology gradually encroaches on every aspect of our day-to-day lives.
Not that this is a bad thing of course, as technology is our survival tool, but a tool is only as good as it’s wielder.

It’s the 21st century, how dare you not know what an IP address is? Ok, so maybe that’s too extreme an example, but it could
do us a lot of good to learn some of the basics of our tech. We all have it in our hands smartphones, laptops, remotes, etc.
So why don’t we get well acquainted with it, and find out what it can really do? I’m not saying you should crack open your smartphone
and find out what makes it tick, but there’s so much we can do with digital technology these days. It’s made us faster, smarter,
and more efficient, but technology can only do so much on it’s own.

I’m not encouraging a total dependency on technology either, because there are still some things technology can’t do for us, like
talk to people for us. Retaining some bit of our human quality is important, but we can use technology to a greater degree while
still retaining that, because technology is only met to run parallel to our lives, and improve its quality.
It was never meant to replace anything, well except maybe manual labour and that sounds like a good thing to me, because
technology is our tool.

Use email more often, maybe learn how to code. Technology is here to stay, the least we could do is get to know it better for
our own sake. We can do more with this tool, only if we embrace it and meet it half-way. Technology can be a true marvel, but only
if we let it.
