The one thing that I found most interesting the BCM206 lecture this week was how some members of humanity will never truly grasp the power of the technology at their fingertips.
The one part that got to me was the anecdotes on people’s lack of understanding with the mechanics of the telegraph.
The woman who wanted to send soup to her son on the western front for example, resonated with me. Simply because I had to explain to my own grandmother that I can send her my holiday photos to her phone, and not have to physically print and send them to her.
The lack of physicality still remains a concept that is hard to grasp by some.
While some generations appear to have it easier than others.
It appears that the rapid rate of technology will always leave some people behind.
