In the last three years my life significantly changed. I got a divorce, quit my job in academia I previously held for almost 11 years and got 40+. I mention this, as many say this is about the time when men experience their midlife crisis.
Concerning my attitude towards technology I pretty much changed my mind. While I was a dedicated follower of IT trends in the past, my perception of ICT as a means for the benefit of mankind has changed.
I have the feeling, that the speed of change ICT brings to the way we work, consume, eat, or spend our leisure is to fast to be dealt with in a lifetime.
