I worked for a company and wrote a utility function. I had a problem and called the help desk to find out who could best help me. After a short delay, they gave me my name and phone number! I was no help to me at all!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
Well, I make my living using technology.
All my hobbies involve technology (although I guess I could go out for a walk or read a book).
Of course when I finish that book I need technology to buy a new one (which was also created using technology).
The technology I need was created using different technologies.
Technology keeps my food and drinks cold or frozen and it's technology that helps me prepare it.
Winter is coming and even though it's still 20+ C inside the house I do sometimes have the heater on on a cold day which is, you guessed it, more technology.
I could go on for a while, but you get the idea.
It's probably not what you (or Gartner) meant, but I'm going to put both my hands and feet up into the air
We all surrounded with technology...
The question is what you are doing when that technology stops working?
Where is your breaking point?
If a broken phone paralyzes you, you are enslaved...
If you starting to panic when the washing machine flooding the flat, you are only overreacting...
A heating refrigerator will freak out almost anyone...
