The sunny side and the dark side of modern technology


I was born with club feet and very poor eyesight and serious depth of vision issues and not a week goes by where I am not grateful that the miracles of modern medicine allowed me to look  ‘normal’ and have very few restrictions on what I can and cant do. I often wonder how I would have coped if I had lived say 150 years ago.

This is a truly inspirational TED talk by Maysoon Zayid called  I got 99 problems… palsy is just one.  Like Maysoon I wasn’t teased at school and I can only remember being called Four Eyes once

Living in a world where medical miracles happen everyday, modern technology has also opened the door to to give some truly sick people a vehicle to spread their sinister disease.

Listen to what Maysoon has to say about social media –  the truly frightening world where faceless people can be as disgusting and heartless as far as their sick minds will take them

This is a wonderful funny thought provoking video. I loved it. You will too. Beware you maybe reduced to tears

Thanks Alison Fairleigh for introducing Maysoon to me. See Alison’s blog here
