Asking the right questions about technology

“The Bruderhof community … noticed that after using television for a year, their children had stopped singing the community songs and spiritual hymns they used to sing on the playground. So the decision was not over the question, “Is television good or bad?” The question became, “Which do we value more: good television or singing children?” (From an interview with Read Schuchardt)

Good question, that, a solid teleological one.
