You Can’t Escape Technology

Originally posted: April 4, 2010 on TrishMcFarlane.com

Technology is everywhere around us and we can’t escape it. For many of us, it is already part of our daily activity.  Every day, I hear people saying they do not have time to learn new technology.  They make 101 excuses about what is preventing them from doing it, from accepting the inevitable.  They talk about how social media is a passing fad and that it has no value.  These people frustrate me because they can’t see the writing on the wall.

As I write this, I’m in the suv on the way to take my kids to breakfast with the Easter bunny.  I’m blogging using my netbook, my husband is looking up restaurant info on his myTouch, my kids are watching the Power Rangers on the dvd player in the car. We’re meeting my sister and her family and she just sent me a text with a picture attached of the bows she made for my daughter to wear today.  I’m also getting tweets from many of my friends from around the globe this morning and I just used my phone to comment on a great blog post by the Creative Chaos Consultant.

We’re laughing, talking and still interacting, and thankfully, we have my cousin driving.  Oh, and she’s using her GPS.

My family is connected.  We’re taking advantage of technology.

To all the naysayers out there, I hold my family up as an example.  We’re not special.  We’re just an average American family living in the center of the country.  If we can do it, so can they.
