Opinion: Stop vilifying technology

Author: JT Smith

From a column at ZDNet: "The newest villain is the Internet itself. A bunch of chowderheads from the Turning Point Project are running full-page ads in The New York Times claiming that the whole computer revolution is the incarnation of evil, and a threat to democracy. Why? Because computers let employers measure workers' output better. Because chip makers use "huge amounts of pure water." Because while it's OK for catalog merchants to avoid out-of-state sales tax, greedy Internet merchants are somehow stealing money from sanitation workers."
