Topic: Did God Invent the Internet? Description: Many people today are discussing the ultimate impact of technology on the human race. They often dont state it just that way, but they do talk about how technology is impacting our kids, and how it has changed their own lives for better and for worse. So the seminal question is whether technology will ultimately help or cripple humanity. In some ways, this thought might be too big and unpredictable to even consider in 2010, yet if we can project out what the answer might be, the changes in behavior we could make now might really be helpful. The reality is that technology may be the largest catalyst for change since we became conscious. No other influence in our lives is so integrated into who we are, and how we operate. It is also important to note, that we have barely scratched the surface with how we use technology because we have only had it for a relatively short time. At the current rate of progression with invention and innovation, our lives will barely be recognizable 100 years from now. By the way, our kids and grandkids will still be alive at that time in most cases, so it is imperative that we form our beliefs on what this powerful catalyst might inevitably do for us and make any adjustments necessary now About TEDx, x=independently organize event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self- organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
