Andrew Russell, a professor at Stevens Institute of Technology.  “Every jump in technology draws attention and capital away from existing technologies used by the 99 percent, which therefore undermines equality, and reduces the ability for people to get onto the ‘playing field’ in the first place.”
Russell also reminded me of the famous William Gibson quote, “The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.”
“I have never been able to understand why anyone would assume that the future would be evenly distributed,” Russell said.  “To put this in a different way:  I have never been able to find any evidence from human history to suggest that the future will be evenly distributed.”
