Former co-host of MythBusters television show Jamie Hyneman believes that technology is a universal language, but it should be treated with respect.
“Technology is a kind of a universal language… I am somewhat of a critic of all the smart phones and everybody keeping tabs on them all the time and not existing in the real world. But it also seems to be that culture and technology are diffusing through and being communicated around the world,” he said at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine on Friday.
Hyneman noted that there has been a growing public interest to science in the last decade. But he does not think that MythBusters should take credit for this. The TV show rather was very fortunate to appear in the right time and take advantage of this surge of interest, he said.
