Adam Magyar | Universal curiosity, appreciation and imagination. | Scoop.it
The camera can be analogue or digital, yet it's no more than a device. If you find that your concept requires a different technology, that's what you need to use, and if the technology needs some adjustments, you make those adjustments. I'm passionate about the modern world and I'm committed to photography, but I thought my message just cannot be authentically conveyed with devices that do not use the technology and the limitless possibilities of the day.

This prediction is bang on target. There is no running away from social media. It is not an option anymore. The future  is where the technology is and it is going to integrate right into your life. There would hardly be a difference between social media and real life. 

The face of education will change in this new world. It will diminish the boundaries and people from all parts of the world will come together and make learning fun .
