“Once a new technology rolls over you, if you're not part of the steamroller, you're part of the road.”

Now a days am kind of busy …yes of course it’s my work but am enjoying it.

I have been dealing with systems and technology world yet it wasn’t that interesting as it is now: D…! Everyday I get amazed with the wonders of the technology and the brilliant mind of human to make it to our most wonderful manner usage!

“Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself, but with its subject.” ~ John Keats

Yes, am in Wireless and believe me the kind where this world is heading ….it really makes amazing the way mobile world is moving with its pace and mobility.

“The wireless telegraph is not difficult to understand. The ordinary telegraph is like a very long cat. You pull the tail in New York, and it meows in Los Angeles. The wireless is the same, only without the cat.” ~ Albert Einstein

It is overwhelming sometimes…yet the kinds of projects that am dealing with makes me study more and make aware of new things which I haven’t used or might have just heard. It’s a beautiful view when I look outside my window and indeed an awesome one inside too!

“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” ~ Albert Einstein

I wanted to share this with my friends lately am busy in learning and working on many projects at the same time…trying to add value in what I am doing! Finally, I feel good as I learn more and more…reminds me of my school days…only difference is that I don’t have to give exams here … :D yet…when it comes to application…its more than an exam, isn’t it?

“I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.” ~Winston Churchill

All these and yet am wondering technology is like that drug which is good in limitation however said that…when its more than its usual dose it becomes unhealthy!

So true isn’t it? Again it’s manmade: D…sometime I wonder did we progress to win or loose? …the other day I saw a wall paper screen on my friend’s laptop. It was earth as a giant cat eating the moon as mouse: D…seemed quite cute but the fact …if it happens then ….ever thought about this?

“Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Too many waves and ripples in mind and heart!!! I feel very happy about the learning and the changes that are taking place yet a bit of scare…may be thinking of the worst or…may be thinking if its getting too much…we can’t even take care of our own home – the Earth…yet we boast about our capability – is it worth!!??

“In the spider-web of facts, many a truth is strangled.” ~Paul Eldridge

Hi Dawn!
Excellent post. Technology in fact improves human life (telephone, Internet, www,...,..,) but does it improve human condition???
Giant cat eating the moon is perfect ilustration.
Have a great Sunday!

Back at your blog after a long break. :)

Hm, this was a nice read for me, as I too am trying my hands at wireless.

Thoughts you have put in is absolutely true. Technology versus humanity. And, I so liked the idea of comparing technology with drugs. Nice thoughts here!!

At times, I do think, why do we keep buying latest and more latest mobile phones and all such sophisticated stuff? Cant survive with the old stuff? Then my mind answers, our forefathers used to walk without slippers, does that say, that we dont have to use slippers. Yes, we surely can live without slippers.

We can keep debating about all these!! :o)

Anyways, nice write!! Thanks dawn, for this thought provoking one!!

Read the post. OK Good, being able to write the way you do itself is no small thing, no doubt ! :)

Generally speaking, have found the quotations within the articles as something novel and innovative, which i havent found in other blogs. In few instances they rightly blend with the context of the article where as in few others it didnt. Also registered a feeling that you are overdoing the quotations. Now i have perfected the art of skipping the quotes and just reading the article. :)

Am just raising an alert, the same applies to the pics.

Brevity is the Keyword !!
