which the ruler?

we evolve with our tools

I am intrigued 
by who the master and who the servant,
the technology of reading and writing 
seems to have empowered us
but we lost much of the dialectic of verbal discourse
and the training of memory,
the technology of the Internet 
seems to have empowered us
but also it’s reshaping us,

which of us the ruler? and which the follower?

our minds contend with our tools.

thanks to
Proust and the Squid by Maryanne Wolf
for much of the thoughts above.
