The gods of technology in our sights

I saw this other day, and I commend it to you. This is a TED talk, presented by storyteller Malcolm Gladwell about the invention of the Norden bombsight, developed by a Swiss Christian who thought it would lessen the suffering of war by making high altitude bombing more precise. This is more than a history lesson but a cautionary tale about the technological gods of our culture. Please take a few moments to watch, and comments below are appreciated.
