[Editor’s Note: This is week thirteen of the From the Garden to the City Blog Tour]
Technology changes us, is the overriding and clear message of this book.
From Adam’s invention of clothing to Edison’s invention of the lightbulb, technology is the means by which we transport ourselves to the better worlds we are constantly imagining.
What Dyer brings together in From the Garden to the City is a foundational understanding of technology, carefully crafted and considered to challenge us and make us think deeper. While simple, the message of change is so important we must take note and think through what it means.
As I thought about the unenviable task of summarising and wrapping up this blog tour, I was drawn more and more toward the thought; so technology changes us, okay, where do we go from here? Well, perhaps a series of self examination questions will help.
