This is not a section I ever thought would appear at Edifice Rex Online, which I guess shows how prescient I am.

After all, I am a child of the 20th century — grown up with moon rockets and colour television, automobiles and the sprouting of McLuhan's global village, now living (perhaps) on the cusp of the Singularity.

I love my bicycle, but I love my computer more, and before that, my typewriter. Recorded music is my friend and I would be a far, far different man were it not for Gutenberg.

So really, I ought to have expected I would want a section specifically devoted to tech, oughtn't I?

So much for prescience.

But here it is and, no doubt, it will slowly develop as I ponder the good, the bad and the ramifications of this, that or the other piece of technology that comes into my life.

And yes, Prometheseus seems an entirely apt symbol for the double-edged sword that is every new technology.

Spread the word!
