We Are What We Build

At the moment I study design. This wasn’t always the case though. Before, I was so engrossed in technology and everything it had to offer that I often ignored the real world. More than ever, that division has become murky and abstract. There is a drive to develop the next stage in interaction, combining humanism and new technology. With this in mind, there becomes the need for a thorough and frank evaluation of the ethics underlying our technology. In his piece We Are What We Build, Eric Meyers brings this to the reader’s attention by bringing into question the nature of neutrality that is assumed in the web and the web’s subsequent structures. I do not believe there is a single person on earth that has access to some manner of electricity that will remain completely unaffected by the decisions that are made in the decade to come.
