Gadgets replace day-to-day human interaction
The Kansas City Star
People more and more are turning to gadgets as a substitute for human interaction.
The Kansas City Police Department is going to the latest in this trend with a gunshot-detection technology. The system noted in today’s Kansas City Star pinpoints the origin of gunshots.
Combine that with video cameras in many stores and public locations and stoplight cameras to detect people who run red lights. These expensive devices are doing the job that used to be done by everyday citizens looking out for the best interest of themselves and their neighbors.
The cost of citizen involvement was zero. We have lost a lot in the transition to gadgets and picked up a lot of expenses in our disconnect from one another.
