AI seemed to burst into our lives suddenly.
One day it seemed not to exist at all, and the following day it seemed to exist everywhere, in countless inscrutable forms, brands and promises.
It instantly seemed to erupt a class of people as immersed in AI as fully as the rest of us count on our eyes to see.

WHEN IS TECH GOOD, WHEN IS TECH BAD
The punchline is always this: To the extent that humans are impulsively driven by compassion and concern for others and for the good of the whole there is not a single prospective technological or digital breakthrough that bodes ill in its own right.
