Techno-Optimism


Read a cool Wired Magazine article about techno-optimism and thought I’d share it. Jason Silva discussed what techno-optimism is:

Techno-optimism is a belief in the power of technology to extend our sphere of possibilities, and ultimately a belief that technology helps us solve and transcend problems, limitations and obstacles. Technology sometimes gets a bad rap because of certain consequences that it’s had on the environment and unforeseen problems, but we shouldn’t use it as an excuse to reject our tools; rather, we should decide that we need to make better tools to solve the problems caused by the initial tools in a progressive wave of innovation.

I agree with the philosophy that technology can be leveraged for the greater good. Glad to see a focus on the positive.
