Google was invented less than 20 years ago. It’s hard to believe that something we rely on so much has existed for such a short time. I think a lot of people forget how distant things were at one point in time. A point in time where school projects were done through books and notes, and if you were sick you would seek professional help, not WebMD.
Technology has evolved quickly, and it doesn’t show signs of slowing down. For this reason, in ten years from now I believe everything will be done for us. For example, cars are already starting to park by themselves and in less than five years, I believe they will soon be able to drive by themselves. Technology is making us lazy and incompetent, to the point where we will no longer be able to read a map, or conduct research by using a book.
In ten years, technology will consume us even more than it has now. I fear for future generations, for they will not know a world without technology and will not have any grandparents or parents to teach them otherwise.
