This chapter focuses on our limited ability to evaluate information and predict the future of technological change. Pick the prompt that inspires you:

Describe two of the neo-Luddite criticisms of technology. Do you agree? Why or why not?
What is the singularity? Do you think it is an issue that we should be addressing today? Or is it a waste of time and resources that could be better spent on more immediate concerns.
