Technology is a crucial tool that can be used to shape the world. New computer technologies change the way people interact with each other and also makes it easier to get things done. New technology such as the Tor browser allows people to maintain their anonymity when using the Internet. Tor in conjunction with cryptocurrency allows people to buy items on-line anonymously; this technology power pack allows drug dealers to move off the street and onto the Internet. This combo also allows journalists and whistleblowers to share information without worrying about someone figuring out who leaked the information. WikiLeaks depends on Tor and other anonymizing tools to protect the people who post information onto servers owned and operated by WikiLeaks. Technological advances also drive change and help to improve the quality of life for many people. For example, new advances in medical research mean that many more people will be able to live a long and productive life. As long as new developments in technology are used to serve the needs of the people and not as a weapon against the interests of the citizens, society will prosper.
