The Law of Control: Political and Social Power
New technologies always evolve within a set of regulatory frameworks and social norms that have been historically defined. The extent to which new technologies become dominant depends to a considerable extent on the new infrastructures required for their diffusion. Infrastructures includes both hard physical infrastructures for their manufacture and distribution, and just as important, soft infrastructures, in the form of: education and training systems; industrial relations systems; prevailing management styles; and legal and political frameworks at the regional, national, and global levels. Neurotechnologies can substantially shift individual perception suggesting broad adoption may impact soft infrastructures in profound ways.
