Moths to the Flame: The Seductions of Computer Technology
by Gregory J. E. Rawlins
Publisher: The MIT Press 1997
Number of pages: 194
Moths to the Flame is a heady mixture of futuristic prophecy and historical perspective covering all aspects of computer technology, some frightening, some practical, some fanciful. It seems that technology is spinning out of control, though Rawlins reminds us that computers can only reflect the needs and values of their users.

In this book, we examine the basic threads that form a complex mesh in which business and industry, in the developed world, must function. The basic threads are historical, political and technological but there are numerous other threads.
'Lentis: The Social Interface of Technology' is a guidebook to the realm where technological phenomena and social phenomena intersect. If we think of technology and society as domains that overlap, the common domain they share is a lens in shape.
