I just received the MIT Catalogue of books on Science, Technology and Society. It’s amazing to go through some of the titles and summaries – books on protocells, internet, nanotechnology, robotics… and some of the implications of these technological advances to our lives – bioethics, security, privacy, rights, and the whole “techno-human condition”, which is the title of one of the books. This last book seems extremely exciting, with the premiss that we are shaped by technology as much as we shape the technology. I really must try to get this book.
What an amazing time we live in! Life has already changed so much since my childhood; hope to live through many of the other changes that are just around the corner.
