Rees-Colby - Symposium 2020
From Colby Rees on October 22nd, 2020
Technology creates ease in everyday life. From ordering food with a touch of a button to messaging friends within seconds, technology has aided in the growth of the 21st century. With the positive advantages to technology, the dangers can sneak in. The increase in surveillance applications in work places and people monitoring through social media has led to mobile phones being essential for work and life as a way to be part of the technological society. Those in control of this information and who have access to the advancing technology can benefit, but even those who benefit are in danger from the information. The dangers of technology expand to users of applications to those without access for accessibility reasons. The social and technological implications of modern technology are changing how people view each other and risk a loss in individualism.
