Modern Medicine is a series of vignettes positioning software as a new kind of drug. The vignettes explore the nature of addictive technologies in relation to business, the power that software designers are presently wielding over the masses, and a new way of imagining companies: as medicine men for the species. The vignettes are intended to inspire the engineering community to adopt a common set of ethical principles to guide the evolution of software (which, in turn, will help to guide the evolution of our species). Modern Medicine is presented in the Farmer & Farmer Review, which publishes essays about humans and technology.

When he looked into the history of the organization, he found that hierarchical management had been invented for military purposes, where it was perfectly suited to getting 1,000 men to march over a hill to get shot at. When the Industrial Revolution came along, hierarchical management was again a good fit, since the objective was to treat each person as a component, doing exactly the same thing over and over. ...obvious that this was no longer the case. There was now little value in doing the same thing even twice; almost all the value was in performing a valuable creative act for the first time. Once Doom had been released, any of thousands of programmers and artists could create something similar (and many did), but none of those had anywhere near the same impact. ...There’s little value in doing so, though, and that’s the point – in the Internet age, software has close to zero cost of replication and massive network effects… the first mover dominates.
