When a country develops its technology, the traditional skills and ways of life die out. It is pointless to try and keep them alive.To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Nowadays, technological advances and their rapid and wide applications are having a significant impact on a nation’s traditional skills and ways of
life
. Some argue that
such
impact is so extraordinary that it would make conventional skills and
life styles
a manner of living that reflects the person's values and attitudes
lifestyles
obsolete.
However
, I believe they would continue to thrive by providing alternatives to modern ways of
life
, and innovative ideas for modern technologies.
First
of all, traditional skills and ways of
life
are becoming an alternative solution to the problems caused by “mainstream” ways of
life
which are greatly influenced by modern technologies.
For instance
, a cosy restaurant where traditional, home-brewed beer is served, offers another experience to people who are bored with branded beers that have the same flavour and come out of mass production with new technologies. It is in
such
a venue where traditional skills are preserved, people become relaxed and educated. Providing diversity and
thus
enriching modern ways of
life
,
such
traditional skills and ways of
life
would continue to have their place.
Furthermore
, conventional skills provide innovative ideas for the development of modern technologies.
For example
, sparkled with how the word “Love” is traditionally knitted into a sweater by some ethnic minority women in some parts of Asia, some business managers from textile industry have developed some production lines by applying the traditional skills to Computer-Aided Designs (CAD). The products have boosted the companies’ sales, which in turn have increased their investment in preserving traditional skills for
further
developing their technologies. To conclude, traditional skills and
life styles
a manner of living that reflects the person's values and attitudes
lifestyles
are increasingly becoming a useful alternative to the homogeneity brought by global applications of modern technologies.
However
, the evolution of technologies is a selection process, whereby some would become obsolete, but there is no doubt that some would thrive when their roles are appreciated.
