Is technology helpful or detrimental to modern society?

A bit of an ironic discussion to start in a web forum. I think it's all about who the user is. At the risk of starting a completely separate topic given recent events, I think of this similar to the way I think of guns. In the hands of someone who knows how, when and where to use it and knows what it should be used for it can be a great tool. However, too many people become completely reliant on it and cut them selves off from the world and start to think of people as less than people. To think of them as just some digital signature out there in the ether. I think at times it even contributes to the violence we see today.
