>If we were reliant on the technology, would we just stop doing these things if we didn’t have access to tech or would we just do things a different way, using different, non-digital tools?

I think the latter. I guess we need to remember that the sharpened stick, the plough, the printing press and so on were the cutting-edge technologies of their day and they were the catalyst for equally seismic cultural shifts. One thing we can be reasonably sure about is that that we’ll be doing it all differently at some point in the future and we’ll be looking back on the way we do things now with equally fond memories / bemusement depending on your view point. Oh and some people will still be using a paper calendar.
