Abstract: Demonisers of technology have at least two things in common: they believe that computers are bad for us, and they often come up with catchy book titles. In the last chapter, Brabazon anticipates criticism. She tells us that her arguments could be framed as élitist and as an attempt nostalgically to hold on to an inappropriate model of education. But she is not so much élitist as extreme. Rather than an either/or position on the use of technology for teaching in higher education, a more balanced examination of the complex issues would be of greater use.
