      “What’s Technology to You?”
    • Technology enables human expression.
      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.
    • 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".
    • From "organic instruments” (guitars, pianos, flutes) to synthesized ones. From hefty, complicated physical machines to smaller hardware and virtually weightless computer applications/software.
    • 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)
    • Learnings:
      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.
      *Quality, however, is another matter entirely.
