Mankind and technology are intricately interlaced; we simply cannot do without. Don’t want to do without, as a matter of fact. Nonetheless, our relationship to technology is laborious to say the least.

When it comes to technology, there is a tendency to think in terms of ‘good’ and ‘bad.’ How do we move beyond this stalemate? Every medicine has its side-effects; as does the use of technology bear its own pros and cons. What are the sore points in our relationship to technology? And where might great opportunities loom? Can we exercise any control over the development of technology, or is our influence limited to how we wield it?
