A contextually relevant, it might even be said mightily so, piece regarding the use of technology as societal leveler. A philosophical rumination of sorts on, as the Author terms it 'techno-utopian fantasy'. In which data (or rather the belief in it - for some as holy writ), so to speak, has the potential to cure all of society's ills. In this way, while not mentioning it here, the Writer pushes the discussed issue to a certain degree into the realm of Debord's 'The Society of the Spectacle'. I would really suggest a very close read of this write-up. There is quite a bit going on in the subtext both deeply interesting and informative. A decidedly outstanding investment of one's time. Four stars!
