Discussion Forum: The Future of Technology
Updated: Jan 31, 2020
In this blog generally I want to consider a human-shaped life, which I explain in more detail here. I'm approaching this thematically, first writing a bit about human nature, then about food and farming. I'd like to move to technology for a few posts now. Because technology touches on human health and capacity, environmental impact, energy use, economics, travel, employment, leisure, and every other aspect of our lives, it's important to approach its manufacture and use consciously and ethically. I'm not going to define what I mean by "technology" yet, but I think we all have an idea of what we think it is and how we feel about it. So I have a few questions for you, and I'd love to hear your thoughts.
First: Do you think our use of technology helps or hinders us in living a human-shaped life?
Second: What do you picture our use of technology looking like in one hundred years?
It might be helpful, when you post, to offer your own definitions and examples of specific technologies.
Go for it! Don't be shy. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
