The idea that ‘technological problems have technological solutions’ I like to call “junkie logic”. I think that sometimes the way we got into the mess isn’t what will get us out of it.
There are lots of technologies not being utilised. And it si revealing to see which ones are and aren’t. It is possible to use technology to do kerbing, guttering and drainage and so reduce massively the number dying from malaria, it is possible to use the technology to do 3D movies and so spend hundreds of millions on making movies. One is being used and one isn’t.
