Michael Huesemann, Co-author Techno-Fix, to Speak at Seattle Town Hall, March 28th, 7:30
Michael Huesemann will be speaking at the Seattle Town Hall, Wednesday March 28 at 7:30 pm, as part of the Center for Civic Life lecture series.
Epic Technology FAIL
You might not want to pin your hopes on nanotechnology, genetic engineering, or miracle drugs, says Michael Huesemann, author of Techno-Fix: Why Technology Won’t Save Us Or the Environment. As much as we’d like to believe that technological innovation will let us magically continue our lifestyle and prevent social, economic, and environmental collapse, Huesemann shows that most technological solutions are ineffective—and, in the presence of continued economic growth, modern technology does not promote sustainability, but hastens collapse. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
Tickets are $5 at Brown Paper Tickets or 800/838-3006 and at the door beginning at 5:30 pm.
