We all have our own reasons about why we decide to blog. And in the process of creating and publishing our posts, answering comments and visiting other bloggers – relationships form. Why we use our computer is a little bit more than that, though.
My friend Alastair posted a very insightful article today from the Daily Post at WordPress prompting Your life without a computer: what does it look like?
Fundamentally speaking a computer is a mechanical tool for gathering and storage of information, with programs for creating with written words, audio, visual, all manner of educational and industrial formats and a form of communication with others: Personally, professionally, or with a view to entertainment or retail (the purchase of a service or product)!
Without a computer we step back quite a bit into a smaller universe, where we know less about other people around the world and what is happening with them.
Without a computer, many tasks done today in the professional world would be much harder or impossible.
Without a computer, we would be less connected with both family and friends.
A computer is about growth. Our control over (and the interactive involvement) with various social platforms located online (accessible through the computer) is about growth as well.
So I think it boils down to the question of not so much what we’d do without a computer, but how can we best utilize (optimize the advantages) the additional opportunities our computers present to us. And keeping ourselves balanced between offline lifestyles and online involvement!
Just my thoughts and perspective on this fascinating question!
