Technology is a tool

We need to love technology for what it can do for us. There are people who hate tech for its own sake, and there are people who love it equally irrationally. I think the best adjusted people in the world are the ones who focus not on the tech itself but on people and what tech can do for them. In the end, our technology is a tool we use to further our goals and needs. If it is setting us back or making it harder to meet our needs, that's toxic and we should get rid of it, because it will cost you less to do without it than to push on with it.

PS - The problem is recognising when something is not toxic but merely hard to learn.
PPS - In that case, it will probably be replaced by something better.
