Townsend, P. (2018). The dark side of technology. Oxford, United Kingdom: Oxford University Press.
Technological progress comes with a dark side where good ideas and intentions produce undesirable results. The many and various unexpected outcomes of technology span humorous to bizarre, to situations that threaten human survival. Development can be positive for some, but negative and isolating for others. Advances cut across all areas of science and life. Reliance on technology causes unexpected technology-driven vulnerability to natural events that could annihilate advanced societies by destroying satellites or power grid distribution. Similarly, progress of electronics and communication has produced a boom industry in cybercrime, and cyberterrorism. Medical technology offers improvements in health, but can include many drug-related side effects and mutagenic changes. Over enthusiasm in creating a global food economy is devastating the environment and causing extinction of species, just to support an excessive human population. We must be aware of the threats and use planning, investment and political commitment to make sure our future is still positive.
