Tech to me (Joel Lim)

  1. 1. Digital Mashup #3<br />Joel Lim<br />“What’s Technology to You?”<br />
  2. 2. Technology enables human expression.<br />What do I mean by "expression"? Everything we do is an expression of something. Our jobs are an expression of our desire to survive (at worst) or to leave a legacy behind (at best). Our pastimes are an expression of our interests - be it writing, painting, singing, dancing - which is inextricably linked to our desire to be associated with a certain tribe of like-minded people.<br />
  3. 3. Advancements in technology let us express ourselves better.One example close to my heart is music production. Electronica, in particular. "Techno" sound in the 80s, Juan Atkins: "Music that sounds like technology".<br />
  4. 4. From "organic instruments” (guitars, pianos, flutes) to synthesized ones. From hefty, complicated physical machines to smaller hardware and virtually weightless computer applications/software.<br />
  5. 5. These software-based music production tools provide viable and cost-effective alternatives to typical hardware-based production studios, and thanks to advances in microprocessor technology, it is now possible to create high quality music using little more than a single laptop computer.Such advances have democratized music creation,leading to a massive increase in the amount of home-produced music available to the general public via the internet. (Wikipedia)<br />
  6. 6. Learnings:<br />Advances in technology enable human expression in new and an ever-growing number of ways.Digital applications democratise expression: makes content supremely easy to create* and access. <br />*Quality, however, is another matter entirely.<br />
