The ability of science and technology to improve human life is known to us.
I'm not opposed to technology, I simply enjoy the work.
Technology has made us ever more productive.
As I have pointed out, technology may in fact have limits, but we do not know what they are.
Technology is simply the combining of other economic products in new ways.

Eventually we reach the point where the technology does everything we need it to do.
We only have people doing this work because we have not yet developed the technology to get machines to do it.
Technology, electricity, mining, railways, navigation and many other subjects are now dealt with in international congresses.

Technology marches forward—perhaps not forever, but as close to forever as we can understand.
This same technology will allow farming to be much, much more efficient.
And then technology opens up completely new ideas and methods for us.
What I describe above is using a new technology to solve an existing problem.
If you already have a large amount of productivity, technology will amplify it.
If you didn't notice, we have no technology here outside the hospital.
There are, in addition, many other branches of chemical technology in which the methods are employed.
This tendency to only be able to see new technology as an extension of the old is exactly the phenomena we have seen with the Internet.
People specialized, technology advanced, and as a result, men walked on the moon.
But with time, technology worked through all these problems.
As robotic technology advances, we are being forced to readjust our expectations of machines' capabilities.
Look how far we have come in creating prosperity with almost no technology for so long.
Jobs are created when someone starts a business that takes a thing, adds labor and technology to it, and makes a new thing.
Even using extremely primitive technology, we have made marvelous progress.
First, the technology can be abused and used irresponsibly, like pretty much every other technology in the world.
Thanks to the burgeoning of technology and social media, public opinion is the most powerful political force in the world today.
So technology supports quality of life (from vaccines to Volvos) and generates wealth.
The abstraction keeps moving forward, and the technology races to keep up.
Imagine a world where everyone on the planet has access to this expanded canvas of human expression that technology has created.
Had they had the technology of our day, I wonder what they could have accomplished.
I won't base my reasoning for how the Internet and technology will end poverty on this idea alone.
Humanity augmented with technology will lead to ever-increasing productivity.
Technology has no limit we know of.
Deciding to end hunger today saves the lives of millions, and we have the technology to do it.
Just as technology magnifies our productive labor, it magnifies our destructive capacity as well.
Difficulty of communication was still a barrier, and technology was still highly limited.
But these are questions of technology, not of scarcity, and technology is about to rocket forward.
But I expect that technology and free enterprise will take us across a threshold where things formerly regarded as scarce will not be so any more.
This is because, as noted before, technology amplifies the productive effort of people.
As civilization and technology advance, people begin to create more than they consume.
As technology improves, all these processes and systems will improve and also fall in price.
Because it is cheaper to destroy than create, advances in technology increase our ability to destroy.
In both those cases, a technology or technique came along that actually changed the way people think.
In one case, the technology, writing, probably resulted in our memories getting worse, but we gained much more than we lost.
Civilization, like technology, also compounds over time, as do its benefits.
The wealth created by technological advance will grow as fast as technology grows.
A term, "techno-utopian," is often applied to people who believe a technology will bring about a perfect world.
I think the range of problems that technology can solve is confined to technological problems.
Many technological problems I don't address in this book, but I believe technology will provide solutions for those also.
Each of its professionally decorated seven rooms or suites has hardwood floors, a full bath and kitchen or kitchenette, antiques, and all the latest technology.
In the end, our fundamental challenge is to become better individuals, and technology offers little help on that front; it is up to each one of us to solve that for ourselves.
I submit that the Internet is not defined in that way because it is a technology without an implicit purpose.
When new technology comes out, we generally understand it in terms of what it displaces.
Think about it this way: All the technology accumulated from the dawn of time to today has given us a certain amount of processing power.
Before technology and prosperity, virtually everyone spent long hard days scraping together enough calories for themselves and their family to survive.
A stable vaccine was developed, our understanding of the disease expanded, and technology moved forward.
Second, as technology advances, it will make things in the physical world fall in price.
And the principle at work in this technology could lead to a cure for other autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Everything we have talked about relating to the Internet and technology is coming to bear on robotics and nanotechnology.
In the past two centuries with very little technology, we've come from whale oil and wood to solar and nuclear.
While agriculture itself is a technology, it is, in its most basic form, extremely low tech.
Ever since we've had agriculture, people have been employing technology to make it better.
Because young people generally understand and utilize technology better than older people, we will see a shift in power and influence toward the young.
We live at a defining moment for humanity, as the compounding effects of technology and civilization reach an inflection point.
Located along the Charles River, Cambridge is home to Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Isn't this the direction technology inevitably is heading?
