The divide doesn’t care if you are tech-savvy or not, it is absolutely heartless and those who end-up on the wrong side of it risk everything. Make no mistake, this growing hazard will soon reach a point that grabs global attention and through hind-sight many in society will say “damn, we knew it was coming.”
Waiting until a major disaster occurs before becoming proactive, seems to be a recurring trait of the human experience. But, knowing how to be proactive is one thing, being proactive is another. As society and technology evolve so goes proactivity, and in that proactivity ‘choice’ plays a major role that too often gets ignored or not taken seriously.
Life has been given to very few in creation where individual choice can play a part in their evolution. Humans can choose to evolve themselves, success in this endeavor is not pre-determined but with assistance the chances are much better. We need to assist each other when the need arises.
As technology evolves within society artificial intelligence is having a serious effect in its evolution and this has not gone completely un-noticed. Cortana & Siri are here right now as AI ambassadors and they currently embody a hope for a brighter tomorrow in many ways. (Sci-Fi becoming a reality)
There’s some truth in almost every Sci-Fi based movie produced and it’s not by accident. Writers, directors and producers are trying to convey a message of possibilities to you and you should pay attention and not just let it languish in the back of your mind.
Pushing past Terminator and being-assimilated by the Borg both of which are a stretch of the imagination, is one film that is surprisingly possible. “Elysium” is a possible evolution of the Digital Divide, if this hazard is not properly addressed.
Storyline: “In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth.” The advanced technologies of the day, their management (techies) and the beneficiaries reside on Elysium. While the rest of society (not-as-techie) reside on earth. Trailer
Today, everyone on earth needs to have some tech-savvy skills, we should help each other reach that goal & leave no-one behind. An effort must be made toward making the Digital-Divide-Obsolete, a task based in everyone knowing how to use the smartphone. It alone enables all of society to communicate together, to share information together, to be proactive together and do it in real-time.
