What is applied technology? This is the term used to describe the things that are used to improve the lives around us. This is all the things that help you to build the best world at your fingertips.
In our latest tech center survey, we asked the question: do you think applied technology is beneficial to society? The results were quite shocking: 82.6% of the respondents said no. Just 6.3% said yes.
The other interesting thing was that the majority of those who said yes said it was about saving others with a mobile phone. It doesn’t seem like there’s much of a difference between saving other people and saving your own life.
Although both of these results were surprising, they are consistent with another study we did recently. According to that study, 83% of the respondents said that technology is good for society. So perhaps they are just different enough that they cannot be easily grouped.
You could probably make a case for saving the other people too. Technology has saved our lives more than any other means of transportation.
Some people, like me, are really, really bad at using technology. I’m thinking specifically of my wife (as she is the only one in my household who uses a computer), my father, and many people in my own extended family. Some of us are so bad at using technology that it’s like a second job, a way of getting a paycheck, and a way of keeping ourselves alive.
A lot of people here are really smart, and have a lot of time to think about things. But not all of us are as educated, smart, and passionate as my friend in the applied technology center. It’s as if all the smart, educated, ambitious people are afraid to tell me that their favorite color, the one they love the most, and the one they have most confidence in are the same color. In my opinion it’s the color of fear.
I see this a lot. People here are afraid to tell me their color, afraid to tell me their favorite color, afraid to tell me their favorite color. People are afraid to tell me their favorite color because it’s a color that can be easily altered, so they’re afraid to admit that they don’t like a color. I’m not saying this is right, its just what I’m seeing. I’m not saying that these people are wrong.
In short, if you are afraid to tell me your color, you shouldn’t be using it in my office.
The color of fear? That’s a very strong reason to avoid telling me your color. It’s a strong reason to avoid telling me your favorite color because it can easily be altered. It’s a strong reason to avoid telling me your favorite color as it can easily be altered. It makes you sound irrational. It makes you sound irrational and stupid. It’s an extremely strong reason to avoid telling me your favorite color.
