Technological Spa

Have just got home from a mates place where i enjoyed a very relaxing spa to wind down from what has been a relatively large weekend!

Typically one would associate a spa consisting of the occupants and hot water. However whilst i sat there wondering what i was going to talk about for this weeks blog i realised that my mate and i were redefining what it means to have a spa.

We were enjoying the inbuilt massagers whilst we watched videos on youtube through a wireless network on a laptop that sat on a table fixed to one corner. From what traditionally is known as a relatively quiet and unengaging experience, we turned the spa into our own little technological paradise. Not to mention we were both texting, therefore not only talking to eachother but also our friends therough mobile phones. Truth is, no matter where you go or what you do, technology will increasingly play a pivotal role in your life. We are continually relying on it to get by in our day-to-day lives, and from the example of my spa experience, we are incorporatig it into activities that were originally designed for a different purpose.

Sometimes i wish i could bring myself to throw my mobiles at a brick wall because i simply rely on them too much...

Anyway, i know that would never happen. How else am i going to kep in contact right?

Peace, David Dunlop
