Technology: Fueled by imagination but corrupted by design?

Share post:

Technology: a broad term used to describe just about everything that takes the ease off of our lives and allow us to do more with our time and energy. In recent times, there has been an increase of reports of technology doing quite the opposite. Technology that many people say are either psychologically or physically harmful to its’ users.

Conspiracy theories have even surfaced, suggesting that technology is the creation of the elite, who aim to distract the population. Millions of people are searching every day for more ways to immerse themselves deeply in the digital space. Spending billions annually on investing in the latest gadgets and utilities.

Over the pandemic, big tech giants such as Apple, Microsoft and NVIDIA made over 1 trillion dollars in revenue. These are companies that have developed systems that interact with the public market to determine their specific wants and in their specific areas.

What is Technology in retrospect?

Technology is imagination on display. From a practical standpoint, technology has been the result of the process of identifying a problem and then providing a simpler solution. For many people, it is considered an art—the art of turning imagination into reality.

For a more practical example, let’s consider the kitchen fork. We didn’t always eat with forks, but once the fork was developed, most people have not returned to using other methods. Why complicate something that is simple, right? Of course, there are people who may want to revert to the old-fashioned way of doing things, right?

The art of technology, like many things gives way for anyone to develop something that can impact the lives of people, whether for good or bad. While there are people who develop things that are not so good for prolonged use by its users or the environment. Technology for Entertainment has also provided an avenue where many gadgets’ developers can provide shock and awe to an audience for a single moment, with uncalculated risk.

In these cases, it is definitely good to consider two things:
1. The purpose for the specific technology?
2. How is it being used?

Again, the art of technology, like many others, provides opportunities for individuals to create innovations that can significantly impact people’s lives, for better OR for worse. While there are individuals who create products that are not suitable for long-term use by consumers or for the environment. Technology for entertainment has also provided a platform for developers to create many gadgets that can captivate and astonish audiences, albeit with both seen and unforeseen risks.

Likewise, technology like anything, if not used properly may result in harm or added risk. So, while all technology is not harmful to its’ environment, some technology is indeed corrupt by design.


We must be conscious not only of the technology we use every day, but also of our active role in developing safer technology and usage strategies. Seeking cleaner and more efficient alternatives to extend our lifespan while empowering us to innovate our world. Considering public safety and promoting responsible use of technology.
