Technology

Technology.  Technology.

Where would we be without technology?
That's actually a really easy quesion
Without technology, you'd be sitting in a cave,
naked, gnawing on an uncooked squirrel.
That sounds awesome!  NOT!

Seriously, though, almost everything you have
in your life is technology.
Your house, your car, your Xbox, your dad's toupee,
a box of Kleenex, a waffle iron.  Waffle Iron!

Technology.  Starts with an idea
Technology.  Making new stuff
Technology. Improving our lives
Technology. Marching forward

When most people think about technology,
they think about cutting edge technology
That's all the great, current stuff that's happening
The iPhones, oh, the tablet computers,
Using your small phone to have a video chat with your mom
Having a robot vacuum your living room

It's already starting to be like we're living in a Star Trek episode
Once upon a time, the hot item was the wheel
And mastery of fire.  And then the printing press.  The light bulb
The telephone.  The internet

Technology.  Starts with an idea
Technology.  Making new stuff
Technology. Improving our lives
Technology. Marching forward

With great technology comes great responsibility
That's practically a quote from Spider-Man,
but that doesn't make it any less apt.
Unfortunately, technology is not all lollipops and party horns
Nuclear weapons are a technology I sure could do without

As we grow more advanced, the dangers of technology will only increase
So we have to forever be diligent
Right now, We're already seeing the beginnings of terminator robots
You just know that that's not going to end well
Another big question mark going forward is artificial intelligence
Eventually, an A.I. will far surpass the intelligence of all humanity
combined, but what if it decides it doesn't like us?

Can you imagine, though?  If we don't destory ourselves,
how amazing the future's going to be?  It's going to be crazy!
We're going to have furniture that floats!  Maybe landspeeders!
And almost certainly a holodeck.  Three more words: ROBOT DANCE PARTY

Technology.  Starts with an idea
Technology.  Making new stuff
Technology. Improving our lives
Technology. Marching forward
