technology // teknologio

is it possible that this generation has gotten so used to using/incorporating technology that its representatives cannot imagine what life without it would look like any more? does technology, the web specifically along with all the applications, remind us of the role that, in earlier times, was played by the telephone?... or.. electricity?...

it may be so; it is the belief of this blog that due to technology, communication has only become easier; not better; and still, the simplicity/ease/convenience of an e-mail [formerly known as: letter!... nobody says 'letter' any more!... : (( ] arriving instantly to its receiver is surprising and amazing every time... particularly when the respective locations are half a planet apart (this planet. for now.), not to mention that a simultaneous glance at a map, the old-fashioned way, makes the feeling even more intense:

yes, there definitely IS a good use to technology; and the modern idea of 'everything and everyone being connected'* is not encouraging nor scary in itself; it all depends on the [omnipresent, omnipotent] human factor...
but whether people everywhere realise this, or whether the prevailing use is precisely the 'good' one, that's a different story.

two different stories, to be exact.

(tiun cxi fojon mi decidis uzi sentraduke la anglan kiel linguan francan; tio iel sxajnas, fojfoje, 'normala', cxefe kiam temas pri tiaj aferetoj --teknologio et al.-- kvankam ankaux certas ke multaj el ni ( = blogistoj, verkistoj, interretemuloj, lingvemuloj, planlingvemuloj ktp.) estas sendube dauxrigantaj la sercxon (kaj ne 'sxercon'), kune kun multaj denaskaj parolantoj de la angla --kio estas vere TRE interesa-- por "ia, iumomente, iumaniere" nova lingua franca por la homaro.

krom cxio, la gxenerala kaj cxefa temaro --kaj, bedauxrinde, unua intereso-- de la blogo estas la helena kaj euxropa situacio. ankoraux. tamen...)


* the idea is actually 'modern' from a technological standpoint only: in fact, it is

1. a century old, if we think about the discoveries in science (physics, quantum mechanics)
2. thousands of years old, considering ancient traditions and teachings of the central/eastern regions of the asian continent.
