The book “Fahrenheit 451” and the article “How digital technology is destroying your mind” both show the dystopian side of technology and its imperfections. Technology in this futuristic dystopia is highly advanced. Throughout the book Bradbury is clearly trying to show the negative influence of technology in the world and its destructiveness in society. Every example of technology is undoubtedly negative. When people are on their technology they are usually closed off from what’s going on around them and are “let alone.” Montage slowly becomes aware that “something is missing” which is an internal struggle he tries to fulfill through the book and points out that “we need to really bothered once and awhile…” In the article “How digital technology is destroying your mind by Matthew Wisnioski (an associate professor of Science and Technology in Society) cleary states technology is “Keeping loneliness at bay.” As we can see from examples in the book and in our society today technology can change people and when it comes to yourself “you hardly notice as the synapses of your true self fry away.” Life today has changed majorly with the advancement of technology and though it is meant to help people nowadays some people can not be independent without it thus becoming attached. Though technology is meant for good or helpful purposes Bradbury points out from the early stages of its advancement in America that there are many negative significant attributes.
