Technology Is For the Family

The Magic Kingdom - Carousel of Progress

Matthew Murphy paid attention the last time he rode Disney’s Carousel of Progress, and he noticed something more than the air-conditioning.

“I learned from the ride that Mr. Disney did admire technological progress, but not exclusively. In fact Mr. Disney thought that technology could make life better for the family. . . . He hoped technology would improve¬†family life, not destroy it, and his company¬†sought to strike that balance between technological progress and the institutions that define humanity.”
