Why does the future scare you? The most emotional and rabid neo-luddites seem to be lacking in introspection. The most emotional and rabid anybody seem to me the least introspective. The above article is a simple exercise that may unfortunately seem alien to many people who are quick to criticize technology.
On a similar note, I think blogging serves a good purpose by taking what's inside your head and putting it in text, therefore bringing fresh sunlight to your ideas and thereby illuminating it's strengths and weaknesses--how many times have I waxed strongly on my blog, only to later reflect with embarassment at first, and then subsequently with learning and change.
