I enjoy reminders that people have been thinking about the consequences of computing technology for a long while:
"If we do it all wrong, then it could be an absolute disaster. It's the biggest aid to totalitarianism you could ever come across if you think about it, and that must be avoided at all costs. On the other hand it's the greatest boon to decentralization and people fulfilling themselves and that is the sort of way we've got to go. But it's up to us."
