About the Event

Where is Melvin Kranzberg when we need him? Kranzberg was the founding editor of Technology and Culture, an influential academic quarterly, and one of the founders of the Society for the History of Technology. He is most well remembered for his “six laws of technology” which are highly relevant today as current digital technologies reshape what we know and how we know it – a clear indication that we may be on the cusp of a paradigmatic shift in human history.
