Due to advances in technology, we have access to a wealth of information as well as a 24-hour news cycle.
The early 2000s was a real turning point in technology. With the arrival of Google, Facebook, and YouTube, the internet erupted, and there has been exponential development since then.
However, just because we have access to a lot of information does not mean we have access to knowledge, and hence humanity’s greatest challenge is transforming information into useful knowledge.
There are upsides and downsides to technology, the most evident negative aspect of technology in today’s modern society is that it controls us a little bit more than we control it.
