My faded Utopia

2009 February 1

To start off, my Utopia was something I had when I was a child, at a time when I was unaware of the fact that sex differences dominated our everyday routines and our usage of technology. Most of my days consisted of watching every other cartoon that popped up on the TV screen. Robots were something which cartoons and TV shows usually incorporated into their story lines as their swift use of practical knowledge overrode a typical human’s lackadaisical one. However, as I got older, I realized that some limitations did lie on my operations of certain technologies. It took less time for my male cousin to set up a computer game and an even shorter time for him to beat me at Grand Theft Auto. When we were younger, there were no such competitions or restrictions since we BOTH had no idea how to work many gadgets. That tranquility has faded away, that tranquility which I now refer to as my Utopia.

Here’s a small 11 minute video link from an episode of ‘Small Wonder’ as well.
