Just as its title implies, we are a digital nation now. Or even to be more specific, we are a digital world now. I found this documentary film is such a great project that actually recording down those details that us ourselves might not even realize yet. It’s so true that we see digital devices everywhere and all the time. No matter where you and what you are doing, you always can see many people around you are using cell phones, ipads, and laptops. This film was made to ask us the question, “What do those technologies mean to you”?
When internet first came out, people all admire how it works, considering it as the world most useful inventing. However, now when you ask about it again, some people might hesitate, it’s just that it is so powerful that it changed our way of living. It became a necessary item in our daily life, just like oxygen and water. But is it really good for us in this way? I do not like to totally negate what Internet has brought us, I think that is just too absolute and unwise. We should have the more objective perspective to consider it. Internet is helpful and with it, it has made our living so much easier and much more convenient. However, when it eventually took the main part of our lives and started blocking the real interaction between us and others, then it became a problem.
However, I believe this is a self-choice thing. Internet is a tool, the one makes the decision to use the tool is us. I think to fix this social phenomenon, we should start with ourselves.
