A thoughtful post to be sure from Dale Dougherty on what technology means to those who are ostensibly disenfranchised from technological innovation. I greatly appreciate moments of reflection and introspection. I would certainly like to see thoughtfulness much more than thoughtlessness. But I don’t think there is a need for too much guilt, and I don’t think that’s optimally productive for society as a whole.
Bex Huff nailed my thinking with his comment. Being progressive and thoughtful doesn’t necessarily mean self-flaggelation and equal access to everything, as much as it means a proportional improvement across the spectrum of need. Kudos to Bex for re-centering the discussion on people, beliefs, and actions rather than material things.
