Some feedback that I heard by peers:
"I'm interested to hear where your argument is going. It's hard to see how technology could be a handicap."
"It's true that technology is a part of everything. People say that we're more connected than ever, but I feel a certain disconnect when people are on their devices."
People seem to generally accept that their are disadvantages to technology but seem unwilling to accept the idea the negative effects are equal to the positive.
