  25. 25. Technology2 requires Humanity2
  26. 26. “The nihilism of technology lies not only in the fact that it is the most perfect expression of the will to power, as Heidegger believes, but also in the fact that it lacks meaning. Why? and To what purpose? …are questions that technology does not ask itself” (Octavio Paz)
  27. 27. Why Technology2 + Humanity2 ?
  28. 28. “When an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, precautionary measures should be taken even if some cause and effect relationships are not established scientifically. In this context, the proponent of the activity, rather than the public, should bear the burden of proof” The Wingspread Declaration (1999) Is the Precautionary Principle still useful?
  29. 29. Should Silicon Valley + DARPA et al really be ‘Mission Control for Humanity’ ?
  30. 30. Embrace technology - but don’t become it! Technology is not what we seek but how we seek
