Federico Pistono

TEDxVienna

Posted: Dec 19, 2012

While I don't agree with the illusion of "exponential" technology, I think the other points are quite good. It does seem to be vision that we are lacking, but we can only fix things if we can find the right vision and agree on it, that in itself is somewhat Utopian..
