Condemning New Technologies

from the yeah-yeah,-we've-heard-it-before dept

Salon is running a very good review of three recent books, all of which attempt in some way or another to condemn today’s obsession on new technologies. It sounds (and I’ll admit that I haven’t read the three books) that the authors are of the opinion that people are generally stupid, and technology controls them. While, I think there are always cases where technology takes on a bit too much control, I do believe that people are usually smart enough to separate themselves from technology when the need arises.
