why technology scares me.

This is not a treatise on all that is wrong with technology. I want to make a simple point to those who have placed too much faith in technology. I don’t desire the cessation of technology use, I want us all to think carefully about how/why we use technology & how those technologies may affect us – personally, publicly, for better & for worse. See the highlighted section below for Shane Hipps’ words.

Technology doesn’t scare me, our unwillingness to engage in critical discourse about technology does. Is technology the next “emperor with no clothes” that must be dethroned?
