Technology is the campfire around which we tell our stories.

Ethics change with technology.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic.
Communications tools don’t get socially interesting until they get technologically boring.
This is the whole point of technology. It creates an appetite for immortality on the one hand. It threatens universal extinction on the other. Technology is lust removed from nature.
Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.
Technology made large populations possible; large populations now make technology indispensable.
The great myth of our times is that technology is communication.
Technology frightens me to death. It’s designed by engineers to impress other engineers. And they always come with instruction booklets that are written by engineers for other engineers — which is why almost no technology ever works.
Technology… the knack of so arranging the world that we don’t have to experience it.
The human spirit must prevail over technology.
Humanity is acquiring all the right technology for all the wrong reasons

One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man
Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.
