The Price of Gadgetry

A pretty intriguing look at the tech manufacturing industry in China, specifically Foxconn, where iPhones are born. The whole thing is fascinating, but I loved this sentiment in particular:

My heart is with the caretakers. But I believe that humankind made a subconscious collective bargain at the dawn of the industrial age to trade the resources of our planet for the chance to escape it. We live in the transitional age between that decision and its conclusion.

It’d be nice to see the culmination some day soon. Cold fusion, anyone?
