responsibilities:18 februaryeverywhere is told us the freedom provided by technology:
now you can save money!all these freedoms afforded us by machines, a world of human freedom, promises
travel the world!
do everything you want, and do it faster!
there is a responsibility to this technology power,
and it doesn't just belong to the people who waste large resources on ego trips and salesmanship.
too long we have let other people make decisions about the use of our tools
we are the users, the makers, the shapers, and we have responsibilites if we want to have the power that affords freedom
if machines afford us some measure of dominion over our environments, we must act responsibly - exercise restraint when we could do things faster and cheaper and do them slowly, with consideration.
we must never believe that freedom, from technology or government or finance, freedom never comes without toil. if we try to avoid the work required to learn, if we believe those who would sell us a new world coming without work to be done, we will be powerless to create beauty.
now, back to work.
