We Should Be Skeptical Of But Remain Open To New Digital Tec

We should be skeptical of but remain open to new digital technological advances.

It is important to remain open-minded to the advances in technology that our society presents, but not all changes are for the best, and for that reason, we must remain skeptical and criticize technology when necessary. Weighing the benefits and negative aspects of new technologies is critical in technological development, but despite the criticism that we rightfully debate, it is important to never shut the door on technological advancements that could one day make incredibly profound impacts on our world. By balancing open-mindedness and skepticism in technological advancements, we can best incorporate technological change into society. It’s important to learn about new technologies while still maintaining a critical eye. Not all technologies are necessary or necessarily great, but by keeping our minds open, we can determine what is best in our lives. If everyone adopted this view, the world could have more research into technological advancements, but the public would be held accountable for speaking up for what they believe to be in the best interest of everyone else.
