Computers will kill us, or we’ll crash them. They were meant to be life-facilitating, but they are simply time’s eaters.
There are days when writing emails consumes my time and facebook takes away a good evening with a book – then I wonder: we created them and got trapped ourselves.
I go out to the cafe and eat a croissant soaking it in hot chocolate. I look at the communicating people and get a wish to chat with my daughter over the phone. And then I calm down.Not all is lost. Many beautiful moments can be created by ourselves without the help of artificial intelligence.

Do computers kill your time?
I am online for most part of the day, i don’t use social media , I read or work online. I think it is time well spent.
Of course, especially if you are paid for your work.
Computers are hard work and necessary but they can take time away
Sometimes I am online almost the entire day, at work and after. And sometimes, I turn it on only in the evenings but it’s quality time. Still, it for sure “eats my mornings.
Yeah, there’s always good and bad, benefits and disadvantages and else in everything in the world of duality yeah?
You are right, the choice is ours to create beautiful moments by ourselves.
Indeed, duality is everywhere.
My PC is the only way I have to connect with the outside world and it is my means of earning with my writing online. When I think about there being no computers then I know I would be shut off from the world and I would have no way of sharing my writing
I know, for many people, PC is the only way to connect with outside world.
Yes they do, online time is too much for me and I need more breaks.
I hope it does not mean we would get less your posts here?
This is a Great Thing.
What is a Great Thing? Internet?
Sometimes it just sucks it right out of me. Thanks for the great picture as well.
I believe, sometimes we all feel that way
