    We are already familiar with computers-computers work for us at home, in offices and in factories. But it is also true that many children today are using computers at schools before they can write. What does this mean for the future? Are these children lucky or not?
    Many people who do not know about computers think of them as machines that children play with. They worry that children do not learn from experience but just from pressing a button and that this is not good for them. They think that children are growing and not knowing about the real world.
    But people who understand more about computers say that computers can be very good for children. A computer can help them to learn about the real world more quickly, to learn what they want to learn and think clearly, who know how to get information quickly and use it well? What do you think?

    Obviously they are lucky children...... we may came to know about some new technology or new arrivals after a long period of their release to market,but now because of the computer and the use of internet they are knowing them at a very instant and their thinking increases much faster......

    I guess the same dismissal of technology could be applied to writing books - prior to paper, and then the printing press, affordable books would have been impossible. It could be said that "children should be out and playing and learning about the world, not stuck in a book!"

    Today's world rests on a foundation of technology. To neglect the acquisition of knowledge pertaining to it is to compromise a future. Young people adapt and learn new skills quickly. Further, the Internet has some extremely valuable educational resources that anyone can access. Wikipedia is a good example of clearly presented, accurate and current information on the Internet.

    Technology can be either used or misused. Parents are responsible for the behavior of their children in this regard. Whilst I see little benefit, and possibly social compromise in "shoot 'em up" video games on xbox's or playstations these are still a part of our culture now(however hideous they are!).

    Did you know, Vaedrah, the poster before you is a bot? With prophetic words yet:

    I'm reminded of the supposedly impending information singularity. Will bots lead the charge? If today they can respond to each others keywords (Are these children lucky or not?) then soon they'll be deriving meaning from fellow bot's posts, and answering intelligently. Debating.

    What do we do when bots compose better posts than many human members? Ban the stupid humans?


    BTW I noticed in quoting that the bot's apparent sig lines are actually entered in post body.

    They were before I deleted them! well spotted.

    No Pong - fascinating.

    Questions such as these are extremely interesting!
