@clintflint - And that's why I don't think it's a bad thing that the definition of Luddite is starting to turn into someone who is concerned about the consequences of technology.
I think that we are too quick to embrace every new technological advance as though it was inevitable or always beneficial. Not only is it more than possible for new technology to have negative consequences (for example, look at the number of car crashes that have resulted from cell phones) sometimes the whole technology is flawed and shouldn't be used at all. Look at how many times a new medication or chemical has turned out to be extremely dangerous. Off the top of my head, CFCs is a good example. We're still paying for that with the hole in the ozone.
And it's another good example of what can happen when we actually take steps to remove the problem. Once the world realized that CFCs were dangerous they started to phase them out and now the ozone layer is recovering.
