There are too many books I want to read.

“The appropriate technology movement, environmentalists, decentralists, professional risk assessors, and high-technology utopians are inspired by noble purposes, but their aims are undermined by a culture committed to change devoid of reflection. Intelligent conversation about difficult social choices reverts to customary but hollow notions if “efficiency,” “growth,” and “progress.” This inability to discuss the broader significance of technological change, […] leaves us prey to “technological somnambulism.” Changes are not foreordained, yet we sleepwalk our way through them, relinquishing our power to exercise wisdom in judgment and control.”
