Writer's Block: Luddites unite!

Are you worried about where technology will lead us? Do you think it's possible that civilization may someday turn away from technology altogether for the betterment of humankind?


I believe that overall technology has been good for the human race, but at the same time I'm concerned that we've become *too* dependent on it. I have this ongoing fear that a well planned and timed cyber attack, or just some kind of cascading accident, could shut down our technology at a time when many people can't seem to function without it. I'm not worried about Cylons or Terminators so much as I am about the human tendency to become complacent and lazy.

It reminds me of the old joke about the blonde who's on the escalator when the power goes out: She has to wait three hours to be rescued.
