Yes, Emma, it does. I sense a genuine and well-motivated curiosity in how people are adapting to this technological revolution, which is happening at an unprecedented pace.
I am 80 so have a ‘respectable’ perspective on these changes. I have recently abandoned my laptop in favour of a Huawei mobile which satisfies all my needs which I relied on my laptop for. I only occasionally use email now, and have recently cancelled my Facebook subscription. I have never warmed to twitter, though did sign up initially. I was too self-disclosing on FB and it caused family discord, so I gave it up. I don’t regret doing so.
In the past I have used various online groups to discuss moral and religious affairs but these seem to have lost traction and have been wound up, had their day and lost appeal.
I like Survive France because there is an interesting medley of opinion and valuable experience, and it suits my purpose to belong, and I get an encouraging level of affirmation from other subscribers who seem to appreciate my input. There is a lot of well-informed and up-to-the-minute information that I find helpful to consume, and contribute to as well.
The technological advances of our era are almost too much to comprehend, but I am sure they are for the best, notwithstanding the potential risks to privacy and to misinformation, piracy, and cyber-warfare. But the genie is out of the bottle, and there can be no turning back the clock. My own time on earth is limited, but I trust the future generations to manage affairs in the common good, and I commend you to your work in that respect.
