The launch of a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station on Friday at 4:43 p.m. EDT will set the stage for an historic rendezvous in orbit. This will be the first time that the two vehicles, contracted by us and developed by private industry to resupply the station, are connected to the space station at the same time.

Every now and then the media, or someone I know, or (perhaps a bit ironically) social media users will put forward the argument that digital technologies are making us more stupid, more narcissistic, or less connected with each other.

For many this theory might be founded in well-meaning concern for their fellow citizen, or based on articles they’ve read about neurological and psychological changes as a result of technology use. However, I would counter that this is a theory which has sprung from a long history of elitist mistrust in technology and patriarchal structures of power and oppression. Let me explain.
