I had to watch a documentary on technology and the ways it applies to the world today, and I thought I would share it with you. It was very interesting, and rather enlightening.
Click here to watch.
The video talked a lot about multi-tasking and teenagers today, and as I was watching I looked up at all of the internet tabs I had open. I, rather surprisingly, noticed I had my email open, my school website open, my blog dashboard open, an online text for school open, and also Google was open.
I immediately closed all the other open tabs except the documentary, and I noticed that I kept having the urge to "real quick" just flick over to see if I had a new email. When I didn't let myself reopen another tab to check it, I felt strange and disconnected.
And very, very ashamed.
Where previously I might have touted the fact that I don't text anyone except when very necessary, and the fact that I don't have a Facebook or MySpace and that I read books, I realized I'm no different. I'm always blogging, "quickly" checking my email, reading blogs, etc.
This documentary opened my eyes, and I'm very happy I watched it. I strongly advise you to watch it as well.
Even if it means exiting my blog, though I know it will pain you deeply. ;)
