Wired has launched a new column called “The Luddite”, written by Tony Long. To get a sense of his (needed) perspective, here’s an excerpt from his first column, “Dark Underbelly of Technology”:
[…] the reason for this column: to lend a contrarian perspective to a world besotted with technology and all its bright, glittery appeal. This is not, as some of my colleagues have characterized it, an “anti-technology” column. I’m not, strictly speaking, anti-technology. I just don’t treat it like a freaking religion. So this is a “perspective” column.
