Follow up on the Kevin Kelly discussion

by Clint Bagwell

The issue of autonomy of machines was brought up; I agree it is a complicated premise, but this might help clarify:

Kelly is suggesting that the “technium” has a degree of autonomy, but like a newborn baby is still dependent on its creators to survive. Over time, this may change so that machines become more self sufficient.

Also, on the question of the Amish and their relationship to technology: This is an interesting article in which Kelly refers to them as “hackers”
