In my recent post, I argue that opportunity costs (time spent doing one thing is time not spent doing other things) may be the greatest threat from technology.
A friend just sent me this video titled Look Up that powerfully demonstrates what we miss–life, love, beauty, opportunity!–when we immerse excessively in technology.
Here are a few great lines from the video:
"I have 422 'friends', yet I am lonely."
"This media we call social is anything but."
"When we open up our computers and it's the doors that we shut."
"When you're in public and start to feel alone, step away from the phone."
"We're a generation of idiots, smartphones and dumb people."
"You don't have to tell hundreds of what you've just done because you want to share this moment with just this one."
"The time you take in all you made just by giving life attention and how you're glad you didn't waste it by looking down at some invention."
"It's not very likely you'll make world's greatest dad, if you can't entertain a child without using an iPad."
