Throughout two years experience in Industrial Engineering field, most of mass production process in domestic and foreign countries have concerned with technology that it probably seems to replace social responsibility. Convenience and constant performance can be produced by modern technology. Profound foundation of technology is main propose in prospect of study for master of information and communication technology and master of computer science, therefore more experiences and argument researches can certainly advantage to establish potential basis of study.

The analysis of the research topic

The purpose of research questions, "Modern technology is a bane not a boon. Do you agree?" is to analyze and argue the disadvantage or the advantage of modern technology which is regarded as a bane or a boon.

DATA COLLECTION

The research method

The research has completed in four steps.

In the second step, secondary source from research book and current journal article was analyzed and evaluated for selection to confirm main idea. The information and objectivity from author, which has encouraged an argument must be related and specified with question propose. Accordingly, it should confirm argument by provided strong and reasonable evidence to supporting research answer.

Although the research was based on personal observations or expert opinions, background and pass experience about argument in research answer is significance. The forth step was rewritten and improved the research by add more evidence to compose strongly research. Therefore more evidence has provided from current journal article in many way, such as newspaper or internet to modernized information.
