    I'd say of course we're addicted to technology. Technology has been around since human beings have been around, and it's what has made us who we are. I don't see a problem with going as far as to claim that technology precedes modern humans, and I'm guessing that our biologically distinct primate predecessors probably had technology (creation and use of spears and bows & arrows, for example). Even a chimp using a twig as a tool to extract ants for lunch is using technology. We use our brains to make up for what we lack naturally, such as fur, powerful muscles, running speed, thick bones, fangs, claws, stingers, venom, telescopic & night vision (predatory birds), ability to see in the ultraviolet & infrared parts of the spectrum, sonar (bats), etc.

    I'll confess, I didn't read the article because I figured it was written to persuade its audience that we are addicted to technology & I agree that we are, so I figured it was pointless to read it. Am I somehow mistaken? If so, let the scolding commence!

    I read it !

    It had quite a few useful bits of information in it that I marked in my notes in regard to getting people to do stuff, which may help us physically build RBE solutions.

    Yeah......I get it Neil, you want to take this to your playground.... :roll eyes: ......we all know how much you know, you tell us all the time .....and that any recommended READING isn't on your menu....That's kinda been a long standing contention between us that can never be resolved until you do begin READING.....until YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW....

    Its unfortunate that we are surrounded by smart people that are often 'admittedly' too smart to know very much about anything really.....
