I intend to look at technology the way [C. P.] Macpherson looked at democracy, as ideas and dreams, as practices and procedures, as hopes and myths.*
What works for democracy and technology also provides what we need for a meaningful life.
We need ideas and dreams to imagine and explore more, practices and procedures to move from ideas into behaviour and activity, and, personal myths and stories of hope for carrying these on a journey every day.
These are not fixed, and as life opens before us, they’ll continue to grow and expand. Time used i these ways will never be wasted.
