Technology Influence On Culture

     Technology and Culture have both influenced each other equally. Technology has
been directed as an improvement in our lives, but on the other hand, Culture has
been present in every invention, noticeable or not, and advancement in our
evolving society. Technology is becoming focused upon more and more everyday,
but culture is the determining factor that decides if there is a necessity for
an improvement. There are endless views and perspectives that this situation can
be viewed from, but without a doubt, Technology and Culture shape one another.

Culture has been a part of our society, and way of life, forever. It is almost
impossible to come up with an idea that isnít influenced by culture. Picture
our lives without cars, television, and computers. This would be an example of
everyday life without technology. People could function happily in that type of
atmosphere, but technology has changed our lives forever. Technology has changed
our pace and perspective on education. Students would have to go to libraries
and spend a lot of time researching to find out information for class
assignments, but with technology students can find almost anything on there home
computers and by accessing the internet. Technology has definitely become the
authoritative factor in our lives, but culture has shaped technology. Technology
is made and used in such a variety of ways because many people who use the
technology of today come from all walks of life and have different necessities,
so to compensate for that technology must adapt to all different cultures.
