Hi-Tech or Low-Tech or No-Tech??
So much hacking and so little time...
It seems computers were suppose to make life easier and more secure yet everyday you read about some atrocious breech of security and someone's network.
So, what do you think, should we just go back to the old ways and start employing people to throw switches, carry mail, and other "less efficient means" as the snow-flake generation would claim and regain some control over local lives?
At the moment we have bored teenagers on summer break in some old Soviet Bloc country hacking into someones computerized refrigerator in the well to do neighborhoods to hold a prized dessert hostage for a ransom.
I have wondered why we don't pull off the military communications from the internet and just hard-wire and have that system exclusive and stand alone from all others. Also, have paper. It is hard to impossible to "hack" into a letter from half way around the world. We have too much junk on stored on electronic junk!
So what about us? We, the bold and curious and the people who remember what a newspaper is and what a paper route was. Should we lower our tech dependence and participation? Ironic I am saying this on a Blog on a computer system... Or do we go no tech and be able to smoothly handle when things go offline and unavailable.
Perhaps a happy medium?
What do you think and how do you do it??? What would you need as the basics and how do you supply it.
Would life be much better by going lower tech and slower life? Can this be done where you currently live??
Look forward to hearing from you!
