Quotes on tech/online use

Postby jerrobertson » Sat Jul 14, 2012 11:44 am

I would like to put together a list of quotes by general authorities (and/or notable speakers) on the appropriate use of technology.

Some examples of things I am looking for:
- Elder Bednar speaking to the youth about using their tech skills for genealogy purposes ("your fingers have been trained to tweet and text")
- Elder Ballard urging members to join the online conversation appropriately in explaining our beliefs (I may be remembering this wrong)
- warnings about improper use (esp. porn)

Can anyone provide me with quotes/talks along these lines? If at all possible, please include references and/or links...

Thanks

In addition to the references you've listed, here is another excellent talk

From a devotional address given at Brigham Young University–Hawaii on February 5, 2008.

I think you can go to LDS.org and search "technology" (or something like that). You will get all links to the Church resources (talks, articles, eccetera) pertaining to that topic.

I found a page on the wiki: https://tech.lds.org/wiki/General_Authority_quotes_on_technology. It only had quotes from the Oct 2011 conference, but I'm adding the ones I'm finding.

If you go to lds.org and use the edit box for searching, you will get link from all internet church resources.
Just try some different words.
