ABOUT THIS EPISODE

How humans build our technological society. How do we design technology, and how how does it then shape us. In this volume titled Technology and Society: Building Our Sociotechnical Future (2nd edition), essays, stories, articles and book excerpts spanning over 200 years address the aftermath of tech products. Editors Deborah Johnson and Jameson Wetmore expertly curate the literary and scholarly history of how humans have viewed technology. In this inaugural June 2022 interview on Hearsay Culture Network’s R&D with D&D, hosts Denise Howell and Dave Levine team up to examine the impact of technology as opposed to the engineers’ intentions—from the printing press to the iPhone. reviewing the the jargon that permeates all technological discussion. The conversation examines how humans decide how and when to use technology, with a surprising focus on the Amish community. With a breadth of knowledge rarely seen, the show culminates with the R&D with D&D “speed round questions” conclusion. “You can’t separate the social and the technical. As soon as you do, you start looking at myths that don’t help you navigate the real world.” – Jameson Wetmore “It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” – Albert Einstein
