I need to go back to the spirit of the invention - to the intent of the inventor! Communication with human beings. Technology was meant to fuel communication but it has become the end in itself. We text for the sake of texting. We buy phones for five-year-olds whose social networks are made up of five to six people he sees everyday. Technology has created a socially disregarded group of would-be introverts maladjusted to the used-to-be norms and etiquette of face-to-face communication. But with no acknowledgement of the addiction, there can be no hope for intervention. And so I remain a walking social cost.
