...the ideas are out there, just waiting to be thunk. So what is the big idea that takes us forward as a species... and do we really want to know? What is the point of all this information if we aren't going to do something worthwhile with it, anyway?

The technology we use is just a tool. Why do we have these tools? Are we really just trying to make more leisure time... and if we do, what for? What is it we want to experience... is it more thinking time, or more forgetting time? More time to watch television? More time to work hard to earn money to consume consume consume?

When we pick up our tools, what future are we creating?
