Quote 9/3

lilod(NoCal/8)September 3, 2011

If we had a reliable way to label our toys good or bad, it would be easy to label technology wisely. But we can rarely see far enough ahead to see which road leads to damnation. Who ever concerns himself with big technology, either to push it forward or to stop it, is gambling with human lives.

Freeman Dyson

It may be necessary temporarily to accept a lesser evil, but one must never label a necessary evil as good.

Margaret Mead

What a great week. There will always new inventions, new ways of doing something and as always, there will be something good and at the same time something bad. I don't think that the first computer gurus saw cellphones and texting ahead and the traffic death caused by them.
