PROGRESS BY COMPUTER?
Published May 15, 2020
Things have definitely changed
over the years. I remember when little hand-held calculators
were the hype and considered a huge progress. We learned in
school how to use them.
And yes, computer technology
has definitely changed the way we communicate nowadays. Nearly
everybody has a cell phone and/or a laptop or computer.
Computers have changed the ways
we communicate and have made all kinds of communications a lot
less costly Ė and more convenient for the people who have the
necessary knowledge to operate all these modern gadgets.
Especially the younger folks
seem to be addicted to their cell phones. Some of them are
actually unable to hold a serious conversation without using
their cell phones.
And when pushing for all this
modern gadgets to take over our daily lives, please consider the
fact there are still quite some folks who donít know how to
operate all these gadgets and are automatically locked out, if
all communication is done by these gadgets.
In my opinion there is still
nothing better than face-to-face meetings and discussions,
because faces are often more truthful than the words coming out
of the mouth in that face. Remember, most faces still havenít
learned how to be political correct!
||Jan Bergemann is president of Cyber Citizens For Justice,
's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group.
CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in
associations. He moved to
in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the
developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues
for his own purposes. End of retirement!
CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in
- finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a
member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.
The organization has two websites to inform interested
homeowners and condo owners:
News Website: http://www.ccfj.net/.
Educational Website: http://www.ccfjfoundation.net/.
We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all
service providers surely have a different interest! We are
trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are
useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking
