Teknokritikk

Siste Resurgence (no24 mar/apr 2007) er viet temaet om at «alt henger sammen». Her er det en artikkel med teknologikritikk som har fått tittelen «Robotic Lives» (s. 30-31). Den fortjener å bli sitert litt i bloggen.

«Our world is changing radically right under our very noses in ways that have never before been experienced by the human nervous system. In light of the enormity of these changes it might be a good idea to reflect on just how they may be affecting our lives.
My guess is that we have hardly been noticing. We have been too caught up in adapting to the new possibilities and challenges, learning to use the new technologies to get more done and get it done faster, and in the process becoming completely dependent on them, even addicted. And whether we realise it or not, we are being swept along in a current of time acceleration that shows no signs of slowing down. The technology, so touted to produce gains in efficiency and leisure, threatens to rob us of both if it hasn´t already done so. Who do you know who has more leisure?»

Og litt senere ut i artikklelen:

«…With our mobile phones and wireless palm devices, we are now able to be so connected that we can be in touch with anyone and everyone at any time, and do business anywhere. But have you noticed that, in the process, we run the risk of never being in touch with ourselves?»
