I don't remember who told it:
Quote:
Humanity is increasing knwoledge way, way faster than is increasing wisdom


So, since the technology evolution is unstopable (as far as we don't destroy everything). What comes next it doesn't really matter.

What really and desperately needs to be improved is our use of it.
I.e:
Atom energy --> Nuclear bomb
Internet --> Cyberspy, lack of privacity, being tracked by governments and/or big companies
Online Banking --> Online thieves, scammers, trojans
and more, and more and more...

It is a shame that for every jump in the technology there is almost always a very dark side that takes profit / explotes it.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
