Kent Shaffer over at Church Relevance has a great post about what happens when we get blinded by tech novelty. This is part 2 of 2 (part one largely deals with graphic design, and is interesting, but not what I wanted to talk about).
Kent defines Tech Novelty this way:
Tech Novelty is:
Being blinded by the novelty of an exciting new technology and consequently misusing the technology for novelty’s sake. Misuse of technology may be caused by lack of training and/or from the inability to focus on anything except the novelty.
I see this a lot in churches. I have more to say about the topic, but for now, go read Kent’s post. More to come…
