Default Re: Science Saturday: A Theory of Technology (Robert Wright & Kevin Kelly)

If you take a tech company CEO and give him a framework that says "your new smartphone is the latest hop in an evolution that is beautiful, profound and ancient," will he tend to take an ends-justify-the-means view the next time an activist comes along and asserts that his labor or environmental practices are doing some harm to peoples' lives in the shorter now?

(--commenter Kevin, lest anyone think I was K.K. hopping on the board)
