Because of technology today, we expect kids to stay in touch with us too much. I think that's unnatural. We really do have to give kids their freedom and allow them to go off and become adults.
Society will decide after the technology is created what we will and won't accept.
There is an enormous market demand for information. It just has to be fulfilled in a way that fits with the technology of our times.
I was one of the first authors to have an active website. I'm totally obsessed with technology. I'm always looking for ways to connect with my readers. I answer all my fan mail.
The millennials were raised in a cocoon, their anxious parents afraid to let them go out in the park to play. So should we be surprised that they learned to leverage technology to build community, tweeting and texting and friending while their elders were still dialing long-distance?
It has been claimed at times that our modern age of technology facilitates dictatorship.
Henry A. Wallace
We're seeing how the videos translate to the live shows and how the technology is really reaching kids.
Design and technology should be the subject where mathematical brainboxes and science whizzkids turn their bright ideas into useful products.
I have a better internal and intuitive understanding of folklore and myth than science and technology, so in that way fantasy is easier.
The early cyberpunk idea was that networked computers would let us do our work at home, as freelancers, and then transact directly with peers over networks. Digital technology would create tremendous slack, allow us to apply its asynchronous, decentralized qualities to our own work and lives.

Many people mistakenly think a new technology cancels out an old one.

People live longer today than they ever have. They live happier lives, have more knowledge, more information. All this is the result of communications technology. How is any of that bad?
While technology is important, it's what we do with it that truly matters.
Our children will outwit us if they want; for when it comes to technology, they hold the higher ground. Unlike other tools passed carefully and ceremonially from one generation to the next - the sharp scissors, the car keys - this is one they understand better than we do.
If you really want to improve technology, if you want things to work better and be better, you've got to protect the person who spends a lot of effort, money, and time developing that new technology.

Originally, technology was pretty clearly on the side of introversion. It allowed introverts to connect with people, to express their ideas in a less stimulating way: you're sitting alone behind a computer. But I'm starting to think that the pressure to self-present constantly online is becoming so extreme.
Technology, outsourcing, a growing temp staffing industry, productivity efficiencies, have all replaced the middle class.
You are cruising along, and then technology changes. You have to adapt.

The human condition today is better than it's ever been, and technology is one of the reasons for that.
All space projects push the frontiers of technology and are drivers of innovation.
