But before delving into'behind-the-scenes' of US banking industry meeting ATM, let's turn back time for a second -- on March 27th, 1998, in the New Tech 1998 conference in Denver, Colorado. Here, Neil Postman, a prominent American cultural critic and professor at New York University, gave a keynote lecture. Professor Postman has been a long-time scholar of how new technologies relate to human society, and the book'Amusing Ourselves to Death', a 1985 book that rose to stardom, shows how television technology is destroying public discourse and turning everything into entertainment. I think it has something to do with how we feel about the impact of today's media and how our lives exposed to it are deteriorating. Since this book, Professor Postman has strongly criticized the tendency to respond to all social problems through technical solutions.
