If you read the newspapers of the early twentieth century, you realize that everyone was fretting then about the “horseless carriage.” They were positive that the new technology of an automobile that drove itself would push humans beyond their natural, God-given, biological limits. They worried it would not be safe because human attention and reflexes were not created to handle so much information flying past the windshield. That debate reached a crescendo in 1904 when the Hollywood film director, Harry Myers, received the world’s first speeding ticket for rushing down the streets of Dayton, Ohio, at death-defying speed. He was going twelve miles per hour. By 1930, pundits had calmed down about the automobile being too fast for the human brain and human reflexes but then Motorola came up with a handy new invention called the dashboard radio and that started a new round of worry. How could anyone pay attention to the roadway with music or commentary or radio soap operas distracting their attention? So now, again, we are at one of those moments of rapid technological change when attention again has our attention.
