Hate or love, just depends on our attitudes

In fact, I don’t have any preference or hate about media, I always consider it as an objective entity existing in our daily life.

To some extent, my opinion may sound like ‘techniques don’t harm’ or ‘techniques are neutral’. In Neil Postman’s point, he actually argues opposite opinion: every techniques burns with their own preference, or bias. But I think I am more positive. Because I believe the techniques, in the end, are used by us humans and how we use them determines the extent they affect us.

In life there indeed exist people who are addicted with media, but I do deem that there are people like me don’t want to spend too much time on media. It all depends us, we have the right to choose embrace it or even be swallowed by it, or we can just think it as a tool to help us, a place to hide real us, or a heave can escape to. It’s our choices.
