You cannot imagine the hours I have spent staring at black screens and biting my thumb to stop myself throwing my laptop/phone/monitor out the window. I’ve been chatting to the lovely Margaret Rose who shares my opinion that technology will one day make us obsolete (Yes, I do realise the irony that I am using a laptop to write this).
I have written my own book the old fashioned way: BY PUTTING PEN TO PAPER, and it’s taking my forever to write it up on the computer just so its easier to send my script to publishers around the country, even though it will be most likely rejected regardless of the media used.
I just wanted to get this out because it seems that in this world of metal and machine, people are using their heads less and less.
Please just remember, a computer does not invent things. It does not cure illness nor does it hold all the qualities and personality of a fellow human. It is a way to download thought onto a screen, for visionaries to see their world and pick it apart.
A computer is only as smart as the person who creates it and in my opinion, no matter what fancy gizmos it has attached, every single one is therefore still in the stone age.
A brain is powerful, so bloody use it!
