The Social Impact of Technology

Excellent piece on the impact of technology.

The author explains how we have become a product of technology rather than technology being a product of human endeavor and how humans are being enslaved into neatly defined job roles where individual liberty is slowly being shunned away and being replaced by specialized skill sets which then define your status in society.

The article also explains the division between professional and personal life and how pursuits and passions that were once a part of a collective life are now being confined to the sphere of personal life.
