Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt told a group of Boston University graduates on Sunday to step away from their computers for one hour daily and to spend the time with your beloved ones. At least this would help human beings to see the real world without the technology and internet.
On last Sunday, Eric Schmidt was delivering the 129th commencement address at the Boston University. He advised the students to “Take one hour a day and turn that thing (computer) off. Take your eyes off that screen and look into the eyes of the person you love. Have a conversation, a real conversation.”
As the technologies are being developed rapidly and the social media has evolved at a breakneck speed it has become easy for people to communicate with others without being physically close to each other. But this has largely led people to forget the feeling of having real conversations face to face. Therefore, sometimes the bonding of real relationships goes away. Schmidt recognized the phenomenon saying, “You are emblems of the sense of possibility that will define this age. If you’re awake, you’re online, you’re connected. Some of you are probably tweeting this speech right now.”
Through internet and social medias, people gets involved with previously unknown persons but often forgets his beloved ones. Schmidt has urged the recent graduates to turn their screens off for an hour daily and to “look into the eyes of the person” they love.
