Technology – how much is too much?
My argument has always been that it is not technology itself, but rather the misuse of it, that is dangerous. The book I’m reading nowadays, Governing Electronically, has an excellent introduction on the debate between technological and social determinism, and the author (Paul Henman) does a good job of explaining how both perspectives are partially true and partially false. Intrinsically, neither society nor technology are evil. But the way they are currently intersecting has dangerous implications and the enthusiastic adoption of technology should be tempered by – to borrow a political phrase – ‘sober second thought‘.
