Technology is not inherently good

Technology won't solve the world's food problems; without better institutions, it will simply amplify inequality and inequity. -- umair haque (@umairh) [August 5, 2013](https://twitter.com/umairh/statuses/364464699481812993) I’ve never meet a self-proclaimed geek who understands this. Technology is not something that’s inherently good, where more of it solves more problems and improving it improves our lot. If we implement servile AIs and pervasive automation, that won’t be used to create a society of abundance and leisure but to make the rich richer while the unemployed starve.
