Technology and the Future
Technology and the Future by Albert H. Teich is a very interesting book because it is a series of essays by many different authors on many different topics. These topics range from bioethics, to culture, and social problems of technology. Because there are so many different authors addressing various topics, different opinions arise, and it is as if these authors are debating one another as you read. Some authors do specifically address other essays and write their essay in response, such as John Seely Brown and Paul Duguid who write in response to Bill Joy's essay, "Why the Future Doesn't Need Us." The book not only talks about the future, but society as well and all the problems and struggles we face. Technology can be a wonderful asset or it can push the limits of what is ethical and what is not. Technology provides our protection (for the most part) when flying, scans or products so we can purchase groceries, and tells us where to go when we get lost (recalculating...). The downside of technology comes in many forms. Deborah G. Johnson, in her essay, "Computer Ethics," brings up several ethical issues relating to technology. The first is virtual rape. This is a situation when one character rapes another character in a multi-user virtual reality video game. To me it is obvious that this is inappropriate, but who is to say that someone else might find it completely appropriate. Stem cell research and the use of that knowledge to clone humans may sit well with some, but that doesn't mean society as a whole has that same view. I think that of all the topics discussed in the book, technology ethics leaves the biggest question with no clear answers in sight. This book is a good read for anyone looking to scratch the surface of several different technology topics, written by several different authors.

This book is a collection of essays from some of the foremost scientists, innovators and businessmen in technological fields. They are essentially debating technology with one side offering reasons why it can be dangerous, the other side offering sharply differing views. Later sections in the book explore more current issues such as the Internet, genetic engineering and the implications of future advances in neuroscience. I obtained considerable insights into the colorful views of technologists on the social and economic impacts of their creations. One essay was Lotus 1-2-3 founder Mitchell Kapor arguing against the control of freedom of knowledge sharing ("The Humpty Dumpty Problem") and calling for a balance between too little IP protection and too much. Albert Teich has done a good job of selecting the essays and I hope future editions will include new insights into emerging technologies.

This is a very good book that describes technology and some of the challenges that come with it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about different issues that technology has created. Several different writers have contributed different articles on all sorts of technologies that have been developed through the years. This is something I think more people should read if only to try and understand some of what we live with, why we live with it and what could happen in the future. It is very thought provoking.

As Albert H. Teich writes in his Preface, his "selections are -- by design -- a mixed bag" and that "readers will love some and hate others, find some fascinating, others tedious." This "book reflects what I hope is a balanced view of the important issues in the field of technology and society." Well, I wholeheartedly agree that this edition has met its objectives! A+++ Many thanks to Mr. Teich for his brilliant presentation of vast, yet substantive collection of articles. Technology and the Future offers readers the opportunity to apply critical thinking. Great work - I'll be reaching out to the resources offered as well.
