Think before you create

“Failing to understand the consequences of our inventions while we are in the rapture of our discovery and innovation seems to be a common fault of scientists and technologists: we have long been driven by the overarching desire to know what is the nature of science’s quest, not stopping to notice that the progress to newer and more powerful technologies can take on a life of its own”

-Bill Joy (CoFounder – Sun microsystems)
