Our Lives with Technology
Author(s): Ronald G. Driggers

Paper Abstract

April was an extraordinary month for me due to two significant events, both fueled by technology. In one instance, available technology was great and made a big difference in many lives; in the other, technology played a horrible role, and its misuse was unfortunate to a young person very close to me. . I was very proud of the role that technology played in the identification of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers. This was an event that was high profile and highly regarded by most Americans, encompassing the spirit that we all admire. Instead, it was turned into a tragedy by terrorism that killed three people and wounded many more. There are many survivors whose lives will never be the same.
