Read Dave Karpf response. It's great. Do it now. Why can't our tech billionaires learn anything new? by Dave Karpf
You can skip reading it. It's long and not that great. If you read the response you will get most of the interesting points in much shorter time.
My take #
Unfortunately the Manifesto isn't that great. Even if we focus only on technology, planes and nuclear power plants are safe thanks to a healthy dose of pessism and thinking about how you can prevent bad things from happening.
The same is true with economy or environment. Technology by itself won't solve things.
I can recomment watching some of Robert Reich videos if you want to learn more.
Still, I don't want to dismiss science, technology or optimism, but it has to be more pragmatic than what this manifesto tries to sell.
