MetadataShow full item record
We love innovation, no matter how toxic or misguided, and we devote large quantities of our attention and money to it. At the same time, we ignore everyday things and their maintenance, no matter how vital, and our ignorance invites disaster. But we know better: we know that technology is more than innovation, we know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and we know that we have profound moral obligations to care for ourselves, our students, and each other.
