Technology influences life

George Siemens just posted an article about “technology as Philosophy“. While the concept and article are sobering, it was the reference to a Wired article that really captured my thoughts about how serious our work as web designers really is. I highly recommend the article In Iraq With Web 2.0 Luminaries by Steven Levy. It helps us understand the big picture of what we are working to learn and express. It challenges the significance of our task to bring technologies to life, and not see them simply as tools we may or may not want to understand.
