Digital technology is everywhere

The term “Digital technology” is a pretty broad term, and considering nearly everything today relies on computers in one way or another it covers a lot of things.

It is likely that you are relying on digital tech from the moment you wake to the moment you sleep, and even whilst you sleep, too. On this site you will find lots of examples of technology, all of which fall into the digital tech category, one way or another.

Having spent most of my life working in the technology field, one of the biggest challenges technology has, is that even though it is often cited as simplifying or improving our lives, it can be difficult to keep up with or understand.

On this site, I try to help break down the barriers by talking about things in simple terms, using examples to make digital technologies more accessible and easier to understand. Here are the top 10 articles that I hope you will find useful when trying to understand what digital technology and how it impacts you.
