Postman and Prensky really got me thinking about the fear and caution kinda inherent in technology. Reading Prensky allowed me to diagnose my fear as a symptom of Digital Immigrant status. By this I don’t mean to demean immigration as an illness. But when dealing with technology I really sometimes feel apprehensive, scared, and sometimes sick to my stomach. Yesterday, at a meeting during a Powerpoint glitch I heard someone say: “just don’t push the wrong one [button] and have a mushroom cloud.” I’m probably not as infected to the point of this hyperbole, but I’m definitely confessing here to my own fears and anxieties about technologies. I guess Postman’s view of winners and losers in technology’s worldwide and “mythic” domination gots me wonderin’ . . . . what am I, a winner or a loser?
