Crabb article published in International Journal of Technoethics

Associate Professor of Psychology Peter B. Crabb and Professor of Psychology Steven E. Stern from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown recently collaborated on an article published in the April-June 2010 edition of the International Journal of Technoethics, 1, 19-26.

Title: Technology traps: Who is responsible?  

 

Overview:  As a counterpoint to corporate propaganda about the benefits of increasing technological complexity, this literature review identifies five technology traps that befall modern societies: incompetence, self-miscontrol, misbehavior, techno-centrism, and environmental degradation. Responsibility for these traps is placed on businesses that do not adequately test technological products for impacts on behavior, health, and the environment, as well as on governments that fail to perform their regulatory duties.
