Abstract

The dogma that emerging technologies are essential to economic growth and improvements in quality of life is so ingrained within society that it is almost a truism. Certainly, it is hard to deny the benefits that have arisen from previous “technological revolutions�? from as far back as the agricultural revolution to the more recent advents of synthetic chemistry, silicon-based semiconductors and genetic engineering. Yet these and other science and technology-driven innovations have not come without a price (Winston, 2010). From the spread of pandemics to global growth in obesity, and transportationrelated fatalities to climate change, many of the challenges facing society today have their roots in past and present social/technological innovations.
