Wired has an interesting story about the Amish, their philosophy towards technology (it’s a lot more complex than you might think), and the approach to cell phones (which are starting to appear).

    This is a really well written piece. Most of the information was familiar to me, but I had never thought about the impact of Amish and English decision-making processes on their communities. The author makes several good points. My favorite quote: “If we decided that community came first, how would we use our tools differently?”
