Discourse Paper No. 2 has been published. It is entitled Technology and thinking: A conflict.

ABSTRACT
This essay is a discussion of the relationship between technology and thinking. Technology is defined as information, communication and media technologies. Though philosophical in nature, this paper is written by a technologist for technologists in an effort to spur engaged thinking about technology, innovation and what it means to be human. Woven into the discussion are the issues of what technology is, happiness in relation to technology, and the conflict between intellect, innovation, frame and being. The argument is made that technology is a deintellectualizing surrogate. Though society may be happy with technology, both society and technologists need reminded to truly think.
