We use technology all the time. Technology shapes our environment and our relationships. It is a key factor that defines society. Because the choice of a particular technology has important consequences in social organization today, in Civicwise we think that as citizens we have to be able to choose consciously which technology to use. This freedom of choice will only be possible if citizenship has an accurate knowledge and is able to generate a collective intelligence and common technological knowledge.
