Does the modern world place too much reliance on technology? (Nov 2003)

reliance, but not over dependent

easy interaction

e.g.social networking

fast transportion

long distance

short distance

efficient process/storage of information

process of statistics using computers

e mailing VS traditional mailing

calculators VS brain working

Increased convenience in daily life

people use technology for convenience and efficiency that does not necessarily equate to over-reliance

over-reliance

technology render us helpless in case of sudden break down

volcano ash disrupt Europe's air traffic

modern disease due to over-reliance on technology

obesity due to lack of exercise

brain tumour due to overuse of HP

cancer due to radiation of Maglev

moral issue triggered by extensive use of technology

from cloning of animals to human

Over-reliance in technology may result in the society becoming lazy. Menial tasks like cooking or cleaning are seldom done without the use of technology. Most people tend to lead a sedentary lifestyle and this has significant impact on modern society's health.

little reliance

accessibility of technology

mostly present in developed countries (e.g. Japan) rather than less developed countries

concentrated in urban areas rather than rural areas, e.g. rural communities are often displaced to make way for developments that primarily benefit the urban poplution
