Technology vs. Humanity The Co - Gerd Leonhard

Review :

This is an absolute interesting read ... somewhere between technological (naive) optimism and defaitist apocalyptic thinking, Leonhard implores us to start thinking about consequences of technology. It is important we start to think and discuss about technology and its impact on human happiness and even human-ness itself.

I'm not sure that a global ethical initiative will work (given that we don't even manage to work globally on things like climate change), but he shows clearly we need to start asking "why" questions on current and future technological advances. We should not just do it because we can (because clearly, it will happen given exponential evolution of technology), we should do it if it makes sense and doesn't lead to further inequality and human misery.
