What Is The Meaning Of Technololgy Today?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Technology has become a part of our lives that we have even forgotten how life was before they came into the picture. It seems like yesterday when we used type writers and got frustrated when we made a typing error because it meant we had to start all over again. Not only did that require focus and accuracy it also consumed a lot of time and energy. With Microsoft Office Suit and Open Office, with their user friendly features type writers are now a thing of the past. A myriad of other things that we never thought were thought were possible have been accomplished with computers, and it would be almost safe to say computers rule the world. However, computers have not always been seen in a good light as those in power habitually misuse technology to achieve their conniving means.

Despite all the negativity that may sometimes be associated with computers a lot has been achieved through our very own friend – technology. On his speech about the end of dictatorship, Iranian Nobel Laureate Shirin Ebadi said the rise of communication technology in organizing political protest meant dictators would no longer be able to sleep soundly at night. The Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2003 for efforts to promote human rights, Ebadi, also affirmed to this fact saying technology played a central role in bringing activists together and raised political awareness. He also said that: “so I can tell you that, thanks to technology, dictators can’t get a good night’s sleep.

It is this technology that has helped strike down terrorists like Osama Bin Laden, who was guilty of scourge of deadly crimes. He’s left a lot of people in shear helplessness, with no place to call their home, took the lives of many parents and children. Technology played a massive role in tracking him down, without it millions of people would continue falling victim for this cruel and horrible crimes against humanity.

Now you have oodles and tons of information at tip of your fingers; you can literally stay at home for however long you want and still be on top of things. With such a lot of options available on the internet today you can run your life at just a click of a mouse. In fact you can run your life even better because everything is just a click away, just about anything. This allows you more time to spend with your family and the things that matter to you the most.

So even though there is a huge number of people who use technology for purposes of causing chaos and destruction in other people’s lives, a lot of good is done with technology and a lot more is yet to be accomplished. What would the world be without it?
