The Wall Street Journal article can be found here, though I fear it is behind a pay wall. I’m grateful to L. M. Sacasas for referring me to this article. Giving deep thought to technology is the constant theme his newsletter The Convivial Society. I encourage you to subscribe.

E. F. Schumacher, Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered (United States: HarperPerennial, 1973), p. 70.
