Christine Probst October 4 2007 English Comp 3 Shaffer A Reflection on Digitopia Human beings have been roaming the earth for approximately two million years. However, the people of the 21 st century seem to be living in an alternate universe. In the past, people needed only food, water, and shelter to survive. Now life seems almost unbearable without a Blackberry and Internet access. Recent technological advancements such as television, the internet, and cell phones have provided us with instantaneous communication, information, and entertainment. Sometimes we forget that such convenience comes as a double edged sword. Richard Degrandpe’s Digitopia argues that the advent of new forms of media not only change how we go about day to day life, but also our sense of “self” as a species. His message warns us that the invention of “a twenty four hour culture that never sleeps” may be robbing us emotionally, socially, and morally. Degrandpe’s essay takes us on a journey through history of human beings.
