  24. 24. The Cyber Revolution A new era of production has begun. Its principles of organization are as different from those of the industrial era as those of the industrial era were different from the agricultural. The cybernation revolution has been brought about by the combination of the computer and the automated self-regulating machine. This results in a system of almost unlimited production capacity which requires progressively less human labor. Cybernation is already reorganizing the economic and social system to meet its own needs. 24 Source: http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/coll/pauling/peace/papers/1964p.7-01.html
  25. 25. Program or Be Programmed Digital technology is programmed. This makes it biased toward those with the capacity to write the code. In a digital age, we must learn how to make the software, or risk becoming the software. It is not too difficult or too late to learn the code behind the things we use—or at least to understand that there is code behind their interfaces. Otherwise, we are at the mercy of those who do the programing, the people paying them, or even the technology itself. 25 Source: Douglas Rushkoff, Program or Be Programmed
