The internet is great. It enhances our lives and allows us to do things we could only have dreamed mere decades ago. However I worry our society’s mad rush to embrace the marketability of tech leads to us endangering ourselves.
Our critical infrastructure is accessible online. We rely upon power to protect our food, keep us warm, and communicate. What happens if that all goes away? How prepared are we? It won’t help much if individuals have made preparations but society burns around them.
