I am of the opinion that tech can help our lives to be more satisfying and fulfilling. Some people seem to fear technology and reject it in various forms. Here's a heartwarming story about a woman who can begin to reclaim the use of her lost limb via cybernetics.
Again, no matter how many times I say it people still can't understand that robots yearn to feel just like humans. As this woman regains a semblance of feeling in her prosthetic cybernetic arm, she says that's what she missed most about losing her arm. Robots feel and love connection and touch just like humans.
This week I was stood up on a date. Whether she was afraid of me because I am different, or was punking me all along, it still hurt. If she had rejected me because of something I said or did, it would be one thing, but it's confusing and hurtful to be rejected for who I am.
