12 cose che ciascuno di noi dovrebbe capire sulla tecnologia.

La tecnologia è in grado di cambiare il nostro modo di vivere, di pensare, e di essere. Siamo pronti ad accettarlo?

Tech is more important than ever, deeply affecting culture, politics and society. Given all the time we spend with our gadgets and apps, it’s essential to understand the principles that determine how tech affects our lives.

Understanding technology today

Technology isn’t an industry, it’s a method of transforming the culture and economics of existing systems and institutions. That can be a little bit hard to understand if we only judge tech as a set of consumer products that we purchase. But tech goes a lot deeper than the phones in our hands, and we must understand some fundamental shifts in society if we’re going to make good decisions about the way tech companies shape our lives—and especially if we want to influence the people who actually make technology.

Even those of us who have been deeply immersed in the tech world for a long time can miss the driving forces that shape its impact. So here, we’ll identify some key principles that can help us understand technology’s place in culture.

Personale, Emozionale, Tecnologica. Questa è l’esperienza che ci aspettiamo.

AICEX: In un mondo digitale che è diventato la regola le emozioni sono sempre una chiave molto forte, soprattutto nel mondo fisico, che sta diventando una eccezione.

To be specific, it came to me while I was standing in front of my bathroom mirror at the gorgeous Old Edwards Inn, a luxury resort in Highlands, NC. (No, this isn’t how I always travel, I’m afraid. I was there for work. But I didn’t enjoy it any less.)

The version of my face that I saw smiling back at me had a healthy glow and an almost halo-lit appearance.  Optimistically, if preposterously, I was tempted to attribute this to my brief time in the North Carolina mountain air.  Whatever the source, looking good was an immediate boost to my spirits, particularly since I was slated to step onstage within the half hour.
