I don’t know if I’ve owned a piece of technology that I hated – I don’t think I would have owned it then.
As we develop and get quicker with technology in America, it’s like we’re downgrading if you look at the investment in education… that’s the thing that worries me.
People are naming it the Third Wave, the Information Age, etc. but I would say those are basically technological descriptions, and this next shift is not about technology – although obviously it will be influenced and in some cases expressed by technologies.
I don’t believe that government is good at picking technology, particularly technology that is changing. By the time you get it done and go through democracy, it’s so outdated.
The march of science and technology does not imply growing intellectual complexity in the lives of most people. It often means the opposite.
