|A Dystopian world destroyed by humans.|
|A Utopian world, the ideal place to live.|
Without a doubt, the future would be dominated by technology. Each year, many new technological inventions come out that change the way we live and interact. However, we must not underestimate technology because it is the most influential factor that will determine the future of mankind. Convergence which is part of this whole technological movement is what will ultimately decide how we consume media in the future. It is 2012 and so far we have come across so many inventions that were not even expected 10 years ago. With technology growing so fast in the future we might only need to use one device for everything that we do.
The world cultures that we know of today are also going to be significantly affected. If right now with social sites such as Facebook people from all over the world stay connected, how is social interaction in the future going to be? I personally believe that there is going to be a universal culture where we all share something in common and this is going to be possible because of technological advancements. Many of today's typical social issues, such as racism, are going to disappear because they are no longer going to be relevant in our lives. Just like technology converges, society will also go through that same phase.
|Thanks to social sites world cultures will peacefully collide.|
This world is not perfect, all of us human beings make mistakes on a daily basis and it is comprehensible, but with the help of technology we can improve ourselves to overcome those obstacles. We must learn how to use media properly and not cause harm to others because doing so would definitely slow our progress as a society. Even though it might sound impossible, we should try to avoid being fully dependent on technology. In order to have a balanced world, we must still use our brains to solve problems and not let technology do it all for us. We don't want to become dumber, we want to become more intelligent human beings that are capable of doing the impossible which is what the future should be all about.
