I especially liked his concluding paragraph:
...amid all the ethical concerns raised by new technology, it's easy to miss the most important thing: That as these new "problems" appear, they do so in the context of societies that are richer, healthier, and better off -- enough so that they have the luxury of worrying about problems that weren't problems at all in earlier days.
Indeed. The rest of the article isn't bad either.
