Item of Interest to Like-Minded Luddites

I was reading this article in The Economist (which only just now came?!?!? ugh, slow postal services …) about Facebook and “Mirror Worlds” at the breakfast table this morning, but haven’t had a chance to post it until now.  You know this time of year – busy, busy, but productive.  Here’s the link to the online version:

It may be of interest to some of you – especially the part where Gelernter claims,

“A lot of convenience and power could be gained, and a lot of unhappiness, irritation and missed opportunities avoided, if the [computer] industry thought about design … We need more people who are at home in the worlds of art and the humanities … There are not enough articulate Luddite, anti-technology voices.”

I had to smile over my coffee at that one.
