Technologies and Trick or Treat

Posted by Charles | November 1, 2007 .

It’s old that only once a year we got walk around our neighborhoods and got meet lots of neighbors, that’s last night out with kids for Trick-or-treat. We’ve jammed with all these social networks and spend tons of daily time trying to be social animals online, but somehow we are slipping away further in distance from real people around us. Walking down the street last night made me thinking that, what roles that technologies really play in our life.

There were more houses in dark and with for sale sign out this year. Sugar-high kids still tried walking up steps and knocked, and walked away with a bit disappointment. Every such moment ignite a discussion and exchange of stories on what happened to the houses, defaulted, variable rate kicked in, can’t get remortgages, etc. The mood regarding the houses were totally different from the same night walk a year ago. Back to home and look at the things we deal with everyday, technologies, RIA, web 2.0…of sudden felt they were quite remote. Obviously, technologies haven’t helped the real estate market. Technologies can’t beat the invisible hands that mangling the market and technologies can’t suppress human greed on profit and materializing toward bigger houses that can’t really afford.

I think the housing market will see the worse coming and the cycle will repeat over and over again. On the other hand, that might be opportunity for people live in and believe in technologies, we might be able to do something, next time, if we try harder.
