A Technoprogressive Primer
Tonight I have massively edited and expanded my recent essaylet Technoprogressivism Beyond Technophilia and Technophobia. This is a piece to which the Wikipedia entry on "technoprogressivism" points, and so I wanted it to have the virtue of greater comprehensiveness and greater comprehensability. Also, I have to admit that now that my dissertation is more or less behind me, I had the idea of putting together a book proposal on the idea of technoprogressivism for which this new essay might provide a decent kernel (especially taken together with the other texts with which I've linked it). I welcome comments, criticisms, and especially recommendations as I start to think about what to do with it.
