technologia en absentia

I'm pretty sure that makes exactly zero sense.  That's okay, because I'm pretty sure you've figured out what it means.

It's the reality of our era. We are saturated by technology, but we utterly fail to make that technology work for us. Where I look to hear about a new generation of freely-educated students who spent their time learning for the love of it, I see a generation of twitch-happy gamers barely capable of participating in an activity that doesn't involve virtual reality.

If you use technology, always make sure it is for a purpose. Otherwise, it's just noise.
