July/August 2007 (vol. 27 no. 4)
pp. 59-61
The columnist reviews Devices of the Soul by Steve Talbott (O'Reilly, 2007). Since 1995, Talbott has edited an online newsletter, NetFuture: Technology and Human Responsibility (http://www.netfuture.org). This book, which includes material first published in the newsletter, interweaves many themes that reinforce one basic message: Talbott believes that we are not analyzing and mitigating against the risks of technology. We are letting the repeated assurances of progress through technology lull us into self-forgetfulness.
Index Terms:
