The Vashon Havurah’s Speakers Program will offer a presentation and discussion about how to control the enormous power and reach of current technology next Thursday, July 18 at 7 p.m.

No force shapes the world we live in more strongly than technology, especially in the spheres of biology, intelligence, connectivity, and climate. And yet, the results of such enormous changes remain uncertain and unexpected.

Worse still, most of us don’t know what we can do to help, or even exactly what help would mean.

Joseph Caggiano, who has worked for 30 years in technology management/consulting, believes that systems of management are at a transition point. This historical moment presents us with a unique opportunity to influence technology development, especially by using common-good models of management. Joseph will suggest a framework for participating in that effort and will encourage comments, questions, and discussion from the audience.

Havurat Ee Shalom is located at 15401 Westside Highway; all are welcome, as are free-will donations.
