Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
In my lifetime I have seen the rise of internet and cell phones. The amount that these two have engulfed our lives is amazing. Hearing stories from people who can’t live without their phones, or seeing the amazing transition from reading books to browsing the internet. Nancy Colier brings this to light, and I loved having this discussion with her. I think we all need to unplug every once in a while and giving ourselves a break from the fast paced world of electronics.
