W.O.C. – No Technology

Hello Influencers,

More than 30 years ago, on this day, Radio Shack unveils TRS-80 personal computer, which with Apple and Commodore would form the "1977 Trinity." Its price and Radio Shack's established retail outlets made it a bestseller for several years.

So we were wondering, what if we were living in a totally opposite world. A world where there'd be no technology. How would that look like?

In this weekend's opinions contest pleas share with us how you would image your world would look like today, if there were no such thing as computers, cars- basically, how would your life look like had we had the same level of technology as people used to have back in the 19th century

Blissfully unaware of relationship status updates, mood changes. what someone else was having for breakfast unless they were with me, and cute kitten videos.
Would be busy with matters concerning food, shelter and safety. Sounds like Heaven to me!

First, there's a profound difference between having no technology and having the technology of the Nineteenth Century. Let's remember that knapping was technology, too, and early humans used that perhaps a million years ago. If we had no technology, we'd be living like apes, and we'd be very few in number. If we were reduced to the technology of the end of the Nineteenth Century, most of us would starve or dehydrate to death, as our present population is entirely dependent on technology created in the Twentieth Century. We need modern water supply methods, modern sanitation, and huge amounts of energy, none of which Nineteenth-Century technology can supply in amounts sufficient to sustain even a large minority of the present approximately seven billion human beings now alive on the Earth. Suddenly absent technology invented after 1900, at least eighty percent of humanity would die in misery within a year.

Without technology our world would be free of man made problems like viruses and illnesses and we would be free of disturbances made to our enviroment like polution and global warming , lack of natural resources due to excessive and over use. We would have homes bulit to last. When you go outside our world would be lush and untouched by man. Our food would always be fresh and without byproducts and chemicals that can harm us.But many things would be considered a loss as far as i see it. We have made amazing discoveries with our growing knowledge and use of technology and with technology our possibilities are endless.

I think, at least hope, that people would start working together more interdependently than they do now. I think that communities would be formed around said interdependence. I believe that there would be more bartering, more trading in time, skills, and knowledge than with money. I also think that the average lifespan would go down somewhat, but not drastically because we would not be poisoned any longer by food that is produced by huge corporations.

That’s a tough question as. Luckily, I just finished watching a show on what the world would be without “electricity”. Where I can base off. For firsts, technology is everything is everything and everywhere. Some might think technology has to do with electronics, but no. Anything human-made by laws of the dictionary and the word “technology”, goes under the category of technology. But for this response, let’s change that. If the world had been morphed to where technology didn’t exist and never will, for a fact, none of us would be alive. Global warming wouldnt be an issue, mammoths would still roam the Earth and humanity, would be endangered or even extinct. If so humanity was able to live, we would be used to living off what Mother Nature has given us. It’s almost impossible imagine what a world without technology would be like.

Without technology i think in someways i would be worst off but in other ways better off. I use the internet for extra money so i would need other ways to make money. Without technology maybe my kids would want to spend more time together playing board games & watching old time movies or actually just talking.

As much as I love technology I feel it has made everyone lazy. I grew up a poor farm girl now I am a certified SQL Developer. My mom she still works at a plant where she out works 19 year old and well even me now when I was growing up I learned to work. As an adult I am learning to be lazy so in 10 years who will work the farms or manufacturing jobs.

People would interact face-to-face more, which would be nice Local communities would have even stronger ties and a sense of comraderie. However, their would not be national and global sense of community that exists with the connections that technology enables. There would be greatly reduced speed of communication, commerce and sharing of ideas. Most everything can be used negatively, but I believe the benefits of technology outweigh any detrimental effects.

Ooh, that’s a good one. I think I wouldn’t be filling out this response, for example. I think the world would not be as populated as it is today and some diseases would be more widespread. Our ecology would be much cleaner though. I think I would be a farmer somewhere, living off the land and going to bed when the sun goes down.
