Aliens and XBox

I ran across interesting article "Why we haven't met any aliens". What I found interesting is that it follows a few of my firm convictions about today technology. It is fairly obvious, but still shocking sometimes how people perceive and utilize technology.

In essence, we as a people will have to find a way to live with technology. We need to find a very good way of utilizing internet for our benefit and for as long as it is benefiting us. Initially it was great tool (and still is) for research and acquiring knowledge and communication. However web2.0 is promoting social aspect, I think that there is considerably more can be done before we see true benefits of social aspect of internet. When I say this, I am thinking of people from all around the world, communicating more or less freely, working together and exchanging services. What we have today, big corporations making human farms in India is not vision of prosperous future I see.

Warning of baby producing ignoramuses that will inherit the earth in article is serious and is more close today then many are aware of and it might turn out to be more problem to resolve then something that can be organicaly resolved.

Anyway, interesting article, brings up good points.
