Comment on Is Technology Taking Over Our Lives? by Financial Slacker.
I agree on one hand. I don’t think you can judge technological progress by looking at the products that exist.
In fact, I think it’s difficult to judge technological progress in the current period. Because the changes are incremental, it’s easier to see the impact of the changes when looking back over a long period.
We visited Cape Caniveral a while back. Sitting in the control room and looking back at the technology we used back in the 60’s, I did gain anew respect for how far we’ve come.
But at the same time, I wonder what have we done with the advancement?
For the past twenty years or so, we seem to more bogged down in a period of self-fulfillment rather than scientific exploration.
I hope that changes with my children’s generation.

Is Technology Taking Over Our Lives?
Agree. It’s funny how the technology that seeks to improve social interactions does just the opposite.

Avoid the Home Warranty Repair Scam
My only other appliance repair was actually a dishwasher that I tried to repair myself. Unfortunately, after ordering and installing the wrong part, I did finally get the correct part installed. But the new part didn’t fix the problem.
I’ve been working around the issue but at some point, I’ll probably need to bring in someone to actually repair it.
And I still don’t think it will cost $500 to repair.
As difficult as I find it to describe what I’m doing, it’s better than the alternative.

Why Do I Blog and Pour Myself Out There Every Day?
The other benefit of writing often is how much content you create. And just because a post was initially short and written without much in-depth analysis, doesn’t mean you can’t go back, take the idea, and expand into something more extensive.
I used to have a bunch of those short posts sitting in my drafts folder. Now, I’ll go ahead and just publish them.
