The Way We Live Technology affects our lifestyles whether you think so or not Televisions advertise and you buy buy buy Cell phones and beepers and computers in our cars just how good is all this technology anyway What good is it when someone will look a long time for a TV remote control before simply getting up to turn it on by hand We have changed technology and technology has changed us in many ways One technology that has advanced and changed us in America in the past one-hundred is the TV Its hard to know where to begin I would say that the main ah change that television has made at least here in the States is that its become the command centre of our culture Television is quite different from other media such as film or theatre or music People go to the movies to see the move and then they go home And they go to the theatre to see the play and then go home or listen to a record to hear the music and thats it But here in the States we go to television for everything So that we go there for our politics for our popular literature for our religion for our news commerce So that television has become a kind of analogue to what the medieval church was in say the 14th or 15th centuries For anything to be legitimate it has to come through television And in that sense we have become a television people Sometimes when I go to the places and people ask me what ah what Americans are like I say well what we do is watch television Thats our job here And indeed you have to watch television in a sense to be an American because in order to make contact with whatever is happening in the culture you have to be familiar with whats on television
