Quotes That Make You Go Hmm...

Our ECMP prof directed us to the following site, and asked us to reflect on a technological quote.

So many are negative. Don't people see the greatness that technology has broughten to us??? One wouldn't think so from the number of negative quotes that were there.
I chose a quote that I think addresses one of the main problems with technology:
"Humanity is acquiring all the right technology for all the wrong reasons." ~R. Buckminster Fullerse
I think that there is alot of really useful technology that is out there for us; more that is helpful and useful than not. The problem lies in mankind and his demise of morals. Those that use technology for the wrong reasons really give it a bad "rap". We are not seeing or focusing enough on the good-just the bad.

This next quote I thought sort of illustrates one of my thoughts:
"The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people." ~Karl Marxle.
To think is all started with man and his remote control...
