A substantial portion of the developed world's population is
increasingly dependent on machines to make their way in the everyday
world. For certain privileged groups, computers, cell phones, PDAs,
Blackberries, and IPODs, all permitting the faster processing of
information, are commonplace. In these populations, even exercise can be
automated as persons try to achieve good physical fitness by riding
stationary bikes, running on treadmills, and working out on cross-trainers
that send information about performance and heart rate.
