Although modern technologies largely benefit the individual and have changed the nature of social and political interactions, they have also served to make for a more dangerous world inasmuch as our lives are revealed for public consumption, and privacy becomes a disputed right. Many writers and artists have exposed the benefits and perils of technology.
