SLAVES OF TECHNOLOGY by Larry Butterworth

Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

Lately I have been thinking about my addiction to technology and thought I would check in for a few weeks of rehab, but they wouldn’t let me take my laptop with me. This isn’t too far from true for me, I am addicted to the internet and my laptop, what would I do without them?

I like my new telephone, my computer works just fine, my calculator is perfect, but Lord, I miss my mind! ~Author Unknown

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren G. Bennis

Do you realize if it weren’t for Edison we’d be watching TV by candlelight? ~Al Boliska

What the country needs are a few labor-making inventions. ~Arnold Glasow

The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers. ~Sydney J. Harris

    Ha, ha, ha,…….
    You are great, Larry….
    I am acuarius…yes..shoud be devoted to technologies, and for one side I am, for the other….I resist..was very hard for me to start working with the computer, and everything has been done with pure needs. Either you learn or…..die!!!
    I love your work and the words accompanying…the sense of humour and the prerrogative of the classical typing machine, giving brain a new way of communication through written words.
    The almost ghostly arms, like a shadow of those limbs clever and used to “making things”.
    The obsolete of the old devices, and discoveries that have changed the human way of living for ever….
    Your imagination is working fine and that is such a good thing for us all.
    I love it.

  • I had a typewriter just like that Rosa and my mother could type one hundred words a minute on it, it was amazing to watch her do it, so I learned to type on that machine. I also resisted the computer and now I can’t stay off of it, Thanks for saying good things so I don’t look totally crazy.

    Larry,This looks like I feel today…hahaha…
    We have both been thinking along the same lines. I just cannot get away from this creating addiction…Love it too much. Glad to have the secret garden to pull me outside… a good movie sometimes & some good sports. Cooking & cleaning a must…but I rush to get back to my little computer world.
    Love your creation & quotes! We are not alone.
