Were your grand-parents Luddites? And do you take after them?
Are you like your grandparents? Or are you very different?
I’m quite excited by all the new science that is going on: biological engineering, nanotechnology, the particle collider, and so on. We seem to be on a cusp of new age of technology.
Many people are very disapproving, of course. And they probably think the internet is dangerous as well! I wondered today. Do you think their parents were Luddites? Do you think their grand parents were Luddites?
I am not saying the twins separated at birth are likely both to be Luddites or both not to be Luddites! But I did wonder if families have a tradition of welcoming technology, or treating it with raucous disdain?
Is your approach to new science and development similar to your grand parents?
I’d love to know! Luddite or not? And does Ludditism run in your family?
