It happen to all of us, something goes wrong. It doesn’t matter whether you know everything about technology and can fix a problem in a matter of minute or you have no knowledge and it takes a matter of luck whether you can fix the problem yourself. Last week, I suffered at the hands of being ‘Technologically Crippled’. A local tower in my area went down due to some issues, normally this wouldn’t be an issue except for when your internet running through your landline. And when a local tower goes down, the landline goes down and the internet follows suit. For four days I was not able to even get onto the internet to see if it was working. Over these four days I was sick and at home, the best time to get some assignment work in when I was awake, but due to a lack of connectivity, this was just a dream. I was stuck there without anyway of finding information. The little data I had was used for emails and important notifications. For the second time in my life I had to go to the Ipswich library to send of some important email that couldn’t be sent on my phone. Lucky it was only four days and I was able to fix the problem.
But this makes me think, just how important is the internet to our lives. Personally, as much as I like to say I am not dependent, I am. And I need to be connected. To stay in touch, to complete assignment, to function at a normal capacity. Plus I need facebook to remind me who has a birthday coming up!
Let me know how important being connected is to you?
Keep Moodling on Everyone.
Good luck with your assignment.
