the good and bad sides of new technologies
after checking out Bridget's blog on the thought of a small town being enlarged and more technologically advanced as being a bad thing, i had thought that i didnt understand her thinking. grant it i do respect her love of a small community of people that know and love eachother, but im also from a small town and i found it rather repulsive. i found all the new advancements in the town to be exciting and definately a great thing. due to the fact that there aren't any new age things to see or due, as in there were not buildings that were recently built within the last 20yrs. this i find to be completely uninteresting without culture, a feel of movement towards the future.
as i saw this assignment bridget is Zukin, while my thinking is more like Kahn's. this i feel will be an ongoing debate between ppl in the world. it will forever be debated because there will be the mental style and personal opinion of enjoying change. i think however that the people who feel that change is a bad thing will forever be disappointed because technology will be forever be moving forward. this is part of the reasoning that i think its a good thing, because of the fact that if you fight technology you will forever be losing over and over again.
