Even though you know the answer, you'll probably still enjoy the show. Features selections from 2 funny and inteligent talks. Jello Biafra explains how the LAST supposedly revolutionary technological advances--cell phones and the Internet--have weakened REAL communities and increased alienation. Urban-design theorist J.H. Kunstler discusses our technology gurus' (at Google) inability to understand that you can make Ipods out of petroleum but not vice versa!
