Drawbacks of the Information Age

In the 'Era of knowledge and information' were exposed to demonstrate how little we care about people and medicine.

Apparently we are in the 'Age of Knowledge' (or information). This means that, thanks to Information Technology, whose main tool is the Computer, more people have data, knowledge and abundant and instant information.

This change seems wonderful, but for many it is unfriendly for reasons that are not always clear.

Let me give two examples:

Facebook informs us daily the list of people today Birthdays. In a column on the right, add a link so we can send greetings to each of those people.

Before the 'Information Age', we need not greet anyone was unreasonable because many dates to remember: now, if not welcome, we are saying almost explicitly, "I do not care today fulfill years. Maybe not me 're interested in some way. I do not want".

In short: In the 'Age of Knowledge' were exposed to display how little we care about people in general (and some in particular).

Preventive Medicine, in this age, has significantly increased the facilities so that all who have access to a computer or a Smart Phone (Smartphone), we can make an appointment with a medical center where we can practice their own routines of preventive action.

Before the " Information Age "we could argue that we did not have much time to make that reservation, or we did not have much money to go to agendarnos and then also perform studies: now, if we do not expose us to the recommended tests are saying almost explicitly", “I do not care Preventive Medicine. Guárdensela!."

In short: In the 'Age of Knowledge' were exposed to display how little we care about Preventive Medicine.
