TECHNOLOGY

  • Jun 16, 2013 · 3:00 PM

From the dawn of time we have manipulated our environment. Utilizing Quantum physics today’s technology goes well beyond mechanical devices and harnesses electronics, data and exotic materials allowing most to access a vast repository of human knowledge in the form of the Internet. Our pace of technology innovation appears to be accelerating with daily reads of fantastic devices promising to solve any and all of our earthly problems.

Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now?

But is today’s technology really so advanced? Even the most sophisticated of wireless technology is tied umbilical cord style to data warehouses and of course the oft time elusive electric outlet. Is this improving us and our society when conversations between people spontaneously devolve into distracted Twitter reads?

Is what is important to us as humans really satisfied by technology or are we losing a bit of our humanity? If polled, those in emergency rooms would score technology high but those on hold with technical support listening to elevator music interspersed with company promotions might be of another opinion.

We will consider these and many other matters related to technology in our midst. Please join us in the architecturally beautiful Kogod courtyard in the National portrait gallery to discuss Technology in a contemplative and exploring manner?

Most agreed that our last discussion on Intelligence was nothing short of intelligent.
