  • 1. Harnessing the Power ofNew Media for Community, Education and Research: Columbias Triangle Initiative Jennifer Spiegler and Jessica Rowe November 9, 2007


  • As always in human history, the battle continues between the forces of reform working toward the alleviation of human misery and the forces of mindless exploitation for profit and gain. Digital technologies have been enlisted on both sides and have exacerbated the differences among people, but also have shown the possibility and promise of reducing disparities and differences. As often has been the case in the past, there is a disproportionate investment in technology that anesthetizes and kills for the profit of the few. The challenge of the future is to leverage more in the interest of the many with little, and to create the conditions for a greater democratization of human possibilities the explosive technology movements of our time makes possible, always remembering that the technology does not dictate its use, but we, its inventors.
