C'est vrai la technologie est dans notre vie de tous les jours, qu'elle est souvent une source d'ennuis ou d'inconforts mais est-elle un grand bluff inutile ? En lisant Jacques Ellul, je me demandais si son livre pourrait être distribué en grand nombre sans l'imprimerie numérique ? pourrions-nous partager nos commentaires dans LibraryThing sans cette technologie (TCP/IP et HTTP) ? La lecture ouvre les yeux sur la "sur importance" que nous donnons à la technologie mais elle peut aussi rendre la vie encore plus agréable. Une lecture intéressante mais qui me fait encore plus aimé les technologies simples... ;-) ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080283678X, Hardcover)

The author argues that "an easily distracted consumer society is caught up in a rapidly developing, uncontrollable technological system . . . . Every problem generates a technological solution; computers breed ever larger, more fragile, and vulnerable systems. But the solutions raise more and greater problems than they solve . . . . Responsibility, contemplation, civility, and spirituality suffer." (Choice)
