Part 1: Technology Sets Us Free
Increases Our Freedom
We have so many more choices now...We can surf the Web (and millions of websites), play video games, watch movies, etc.

We are not connected to a place. By that, I mean we don't have to be in a certain physical location to take part in things like watching movies, listening to music, etc. We can do it anywhere and with almost any device (assuming it is electronic).
Time has lost its meaning...Oh, we still grow old, but we do not live in a linear environment anymore...Granted, that was partially true before the advent of the technology revolution, but it has become much more the case now.
We have much more control over our interactions with other people. We can use traditional methods to talk, such as via mail, calling, talking in person; however, we can now talk by Internet, text, etc. And we now have much more control over the time, place, environment, background, etc.
Some of us have, or will have, more freedom at work. Growing numbers of people telecommute; they no longer have to travel to a physical location each day to work (or go to school). The percentages will likely grow over the next few decades.
