How has technology shaped your life? Interviews

Interview 1: Dee

What does Biotechnology means to you Dee?

Dee: Well I don’t think we could live the way we all do in this country without it. Our food and medicine alone is our very survival so it means a lot and I hope it continues to evolve.

Are you in favor of further industrial research in this field?

Dee: Yes of course. I hope it does not hurt us by doing so but I do hope for better medicine and healthier food even if nothing else progresses.

Nothing else like what please?

Dee: Nothing else like faster phones and more physically junk that ends up being nothing but trash. I care about stem cell research more than if I have physical things that mean nothing.

What is your academic major Dee?

I graduated years ago but I was a computer science major.

 

Interview 2: Chanel

Briefly explain what biotechnology means to you Chanel?

Chanel: I am not sure what all biotech does but any and all technology has improved our very livelihood as human beings and I feel it is vital to our continuous existence.

Are you in favor of further research in this field?

Chanel: Yes because I hope for a cure for AIDS and other major diseases that plagues our lives and hopefully leads to better healthcare overall.

What is one reason you for your stance on this issue?

Chanel: I don’t have just a particular one but like I said I hope that we can find a cure for these diseases and since I am afraid of what can happen without technological breakthroughs than of course I will support them.

What is your major?

I am a medical assistant major at Centura College.

 

Big City Change in Energy

I think that a few of these energy changes that saves the most money such as furnace burning, solar energy use and wind power use, soil and carbon sequestration, which saves the cities a lot of money like Alex was talking about, I think that money could be used to invest in the neglected parts of the city.

What I mean is the more money that is save by using clean energy, the more money there is to re-invest in the city where the other problems are. I think walk shed technology, people focused communities and the rest are great ideas but are social focused and should be last on the list of changes a city should focus on.

Many cities have eco focused areas or green energy projects that are used to attract people to want to live in that city. But even those cities are lacking something that could take them to the next step and improve the overall quality of life for the people living there.

We were talking about the City of Norfolk for example and I agree the city is full of potential and hopefully the first real change that will occur is the energy and power change.

Abstract 1: Technology Impact and Overview

Abstract

Vise, D.A and M. Malseed.2005. The Google story. New York: Delcorte.

This story shares what happened behind the scenes of one of the world’s largest internet search engines. Many users probably have never heard of what it took to get Google to be what it is today and it has multi millions of users from all over the country and still growing. People are the country alone would use it daily without even noticing how it has become a part of their lives. Anything can be Googled in a matter of minutes and have hundreds of results in return from technology questions to cooking recipes. While Google does not have enough competition to hold it back at this time, it has continued to improve while inspiring future competition to come in and try to become as large and innovative as they are today. This incredible search engine has a long and complicated story which did not happen overnight and there is so much more to learn by reading the following story and learning how Google is about to be historical.

 

This story made me appreciate Google a little more simply because I would not have imagined how much work, blood, sweat and tears goes into creating an idea that would become “untouchable”. By this I mean impossible to beat or compete with. Google is free, informative or educational, available around the country in multiple languages, uncensored, controversial, and now has become its on verb. There were situations that happened with Larry and Sergey that could have hindered Google from even being developed but because they were thinking forwardly and persistent, here we have it. Google the Giant.

 

I LOVE MY LIFE WITH TECHNOLOGY…SCARED OF ROBOTS THOUGH..

PERSONALLY, I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT IT. I DREAM OF WI-FI BEING MUCH FASTER AND SOME OTHER LITTLE FLAWS THAT COULD BE IMPROVED BUT OVER ALL, I NEED IT.  I COULDN’T LIVE WITH MY PHONE, OR HD T.V OR HIGH SPEED INTERNET. I AGREE THAT THERE ARE PROS AND CONS TO DEAL WITH HOWEVER, I LOOK FORWARD TO ALL OF THE INNOVATORS THAT WILL BE BORN TO MOVE US ALL LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF TIME. IT IS EXCITING AND SCARY AT THE SAME TIME. I SAY SCARY BECAUSE I CAN’T IMAGE WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE BEING REPLACED WITH A ROBOT.
