A squib of a post today. A question. It’s this. We live in an instant world.
Want to know something? Get it instantly with Google on your hand-held. Take a photo. Look at it instantly. Want to buy something? Get it instantly on “the plastic”.
It’s all come from the computer revolution. Want something? The computer delivers – information, purchases, communication.
But it is also an age of instant disposability. An age in which we have forgotten to wait. An age in which the sense of anticipation is lost in the face of what we might call instant digital gratification.
Does this reduce the colour and depth of our society? A mixed blessing? Your thoughts please!
