the Luddite Rebellion

XVIII: valiant activists, all

I thank you, brave reader, for your attention to these issues that seem to pale and fade against the onslaught that has overcome us in today’s world of genetic engineering, supercomputers, wireless communications, mass mining and malls, and the triumph of all that is destroying the planet.  As a final offering to you, and in celebration of the valiant rebels of the 19th century, I am providing a list the participants of the various Mega-technology conferences and Jacques Ellul Society gatherings that took place between 1992 and 1998.  Maybe you will be interested in their work as well?
