Technology: what are we losing? Does it matter?

Such is the scale of change wrought by the current Digital Age that it is being compared with the profound changes that occurred as a result of the invention of printing in the 15th century, and the industrial revolution of the 18th century. Every new wave of technology produces changes. Some of these changes are immediately welcome, and their benefits obvious. Some changes are easy to see and predict. Other changes take time, are less immediately obvious, and are not always welcome. With each change, with each gain, there is some loss. We are clearly in the middle of massive technology driven change. What then are we losing? Is this loss an inevitable consequence of change? Should we be trying to identify practices and values that ought not to change, or has that horse already bolted? Message re licensing of this content This content was uploaded to Slideshare before it was taken over by Scribd. My intention was always to offer my content for free via Creative Commons licensing. Scribd now has locked the content behind a paywall where you have to provide credit card details before you can download it. I totally disagree with this kind of exploitation of previously free content but it apparently is legal for Scribd to do this. However, you can still download this content without messing around with credit card nonsense if you go to the original Slideshare site of this presentation. Sorry for the hassle, but it is Scribd's doing - not mine. - MIchael Coghlan (michaelc)

ABSTRACT/DESCRIPTION
Such is the scale of change wrought by the current Digital Age that it is being
compared with the profound changes that occurred as a result of the
invention of printing in the 15th century, and the industrial revolution of the
18th century. Every new wave of technology produces changes. Some of
these changes are immediately welcome, and their benefits obvious. Some
changes are easy to see and predict. Other changes take time, are less
immediately obvious, and are not always welcome. With each change, with
each gain, there is some loss.
We are clearly in the middle of massive technology driven change. What
then might we be losing? Is this loss an inevitable consequence of change?
Should we be trying to identify practices and values that ought not to
change, or has that horse already bolted?
Technology: what are we losing? Does it matter?

Technology: what are we losing? Does it matter?

  • 2. ABSTRACT/DESCRIPTION Such is the scale of change wrought by the current Digital Age that it is being compared with the profound changes that occurred as a result of the invention of printing in the 15th century, and the industrial revolution of the 18th century. Every new wave of technology produces changes. Some of these changes are immediately welcome, and their benefits obvious. Some changes are easy to see and predict. Other changes take time, are less immediately obvious, and are not always welcome. With each change, with each gain, there is some loss. We are clearly in the middle of massive technology driven change. What then might we be losing? Is this loss an inevitable consequence of change? Should we be trying to identify practices and values that ought not to change, or has that horse already bolted?
