Comment of the Week
The question overlooks the very nature of technology.
Technology is the application of knowledge to suit practical aims. Whether this is via knapping chert into a cutting edge, domesticating animals, or googling a concept on the internet – understanding our environment, and applying that understanding, is a significant part of what it means to be human. Modern technology is nothing but the guided evolution of premodern technology.
A more relevant question is, "are we applying our technology in the best way?" Are we using modern technology to make our efforts more efficient and our existence more fulfilling? Are we applying our knowledge in a manner that makes our lives and our world better?
In the collective sense, we usually are not."
