In short:
Socio-Political factors derive our ability to innovation moreover technological development.

Technology determines our socio-cultural make-up

Take this SURVEY and let us know what you think

These ideals are important to understand as we start to discuss phrases like “Information Society”, “Industrialized Societies”.

I think everyone already knows that I am a technological determinist, but I’m open to discuss the opposing ideal.

Many argue that he was a technological determinist while others (Rosenberg: Inside the Black Box) show that it is easier to identify that he was not. Does that influence your subscription? If so, how?
