moral dilema?

I am not sure what is the moral dilema here...we live long, health lives now with pretty darn good comfort...just look back 100 years...so if the dilema is to use digital revolution or not you are free to stop using cell phone, I know many people who just did that


According to wikipedia (if I dropped the digital revolution I would not be able to find this out ;-):

An ethical dilemma is a complex situation that often involves an apparent mental conflict between moral imperatives, in which to obey one would result in transgressing another. This is also called an ethical paradox since in moral philosophy, paradox often plays a central role in ethics debates. Ethical dilemmas are often cited in an attempt to refute an ethical system or moral code, as well as the worldview that encompasses or grows from it


I hardly see that Moore's law or its consequences fit here...Kris

I love your phrase "a soulless silicon civilization" and I agree balance means so much.

On the positive side I have to remind myself the amazing capabilities we have with the Web and smartphones. I recall getting our first color TV and watching Star Trek. Such advances!
