10 Tech Commandments for Oldsters
Do Unto Others As Thou Would Internet Unto You
The 10 Commandments serve us well, but in these Modern Times, I modestly propose an electronic update – 10 tech commandments – to the stone tablets Moses first delivered!
Yes, in the “good” old days, the world was simpler, slower-paced, easier to understand or at least, so we recall.
In today’s fast-moving tech world, we middle-aged muddlers need new guidelines to navigate the world AND the worldwide web. And I think our kids could use a few helpful hints as well. In fact, you might want to show them Tech Commandment Number 5. Better yet – needlepoint it on a pillow for their bedroom.
|Ye Old School 10 Commandments||The Tech 10 Commandments for Oldsters|
|Thou shall have no other Gods but me.||Thou shalt use no search engines but Google.|
|Thou shall not make for yourself any idol, nor bow down to it or worship it.||Thou shalt not Photoshop thy own pictures beyond recognition.|
|Thou shall not misuse the name of the Lord, your God.||Thou shall not take Alexa’s name in vain.|
|Thou shall remember and keep the Sabbath day holy.||Thou shall not Snapchat during the High Holidays.|
|Thou shall respect your father and mother.||Thou shall not ignore thy parents’ text messages or emails.|
|Thou shall not commit murder.||Still a good rule. (No update required.)|
|Thou shall not commit adultery.||Thou shall not post false Facebook status updates.|
|Thou shall not steal.||Thou shalt not plagiarize source material.|
|Thou shall not give false witness against your neighbor.||Thou shall not “reply all” to a group message – EVER!!!|
|Thou shall not be envious of your neighbor’s house
nor his wife, nor anything that belongs to your neighbor.
|Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s Wi-Fi.|
Well, dear muddlers,
Thoughts/recommendation on additional tech commandments we need?
