Just like every generation before us we must learn to try our best to use all technology for good. When the phone became commonplace suddenly our ability to spread loshon hora (slander) became exponentially easier. The car gave us an ability to go places we were not able to, and maybe we shouldn't. But all these technologies also gave us the ability to help people, to promote charity, and save lives. No technology is either good or bad. But it can make the good better or the bad worse.
We need gatherings like these to remind us of that.
