I generally maintain that technology itself is neutral; it can liberate or enslave depending on the individual. Workaholics and their neglect of family existed long before the BlackBerry device. Indeed, the root causes of such behavior are far deeper and more profound than any technology.
Perhaps the best summation is provided by another law professor, Glenn Reynolds: â€œLike all technology, it depends on how you use it. . . .â€
I am curious as to what you Thoughtful Readers out there think: what impact has the BlackBerry and other connected technologies had on your personal life and relationships?
