112: 2011-04-08: RT @brainpicker: The Pringle as technology (via @matthiasrascher)
113: 2011-04-03: Someone can speak a dozen languages and still not have a clue about people. They have technical skills but not meta-skills.
114: 2011-04-03: Technical skills, like juggling or engineering, are useful only in certain environments. Meta-skills are applicable in ALL environments.

117: 2011-03-28: RT @Erekosse: @BadDalaiLama I think your essay on technology has some true facts. Sometimes feel like technology dehumanize us or dumb us.
118: 2011-03-28: Social problems cannot be solved by technological innovation.
119: 2011-03-28: Technology made us who we are (Where would we be without writing, fire or agriculture?) but that doesn't mean we're better with more of it.
120: 2011-03-28: For every benefit you can cite for technology, I can point out a corresponding loss for society.

125: 2011-03-28: Technology keeps itself in business through continuous obsolescence of old technology.
126: 2011-03-28: Technology promotes arms races among competing parties. One gets a new thing, so the opponent gets it, with no net change in the status quo.
127: 2011-03-28: You're a fool if you think the solution to world hunger is simply to produce more food. Technology can help with that, yet change nothing.

135: 2011-03-26: The only control on the runaway growth of medical technology (and its cost) is insurance companies saying "No."

140: 2011-03-24: For every problem technology solves, it creates another, so in the end you can't say that it improved anything.
141: 2011-03-24: technological chauvinism—n. the belief of each new generation that its technology renders it inherently superior to any previous generation.
142: 2011-03-19: The techniques that once worked for us don't work anymore. We try them again and again until we get a clue: "I have to change!"
143: 2011-03-15: @SrMaryNapalm "Edward De Bono's techniques can help anyone with structured creativity" <== Example, please! What great artist has it helped?
144: 2011-03-15: The biggest educational fraud: classes for "creativity". (Crafts and techniques, sure, but creativity itself can't be formally educated.)

192: KilroyCafe: 2009-12-26: Do drivers who use radar detectors get fewer speeding tickets than those who don't? I think the opposite. Technology begets overconfidence!
