Episode 306 - Screwed By Tech
4 days ago
Technology has reshaped our lives and in many ways offers improvement over the way things were before technology came along. Yet there are also downsides, tradeoffs that we don't always see in our rush to the newest thing. Back in July when we talked with Kevin Kelly, we covered some of these issues that he brought up in his book The Inevitable. And we've also had a fun and stimulating back and forth with the Singularity Bros about OWNERSHIP. In this episode we use a Cracked article as a jumping off point to dig further into some of the ways that technology and the Silicon Valley way of doing things actually makes our lives worse, now and in the future.
