Technology seems wonderful - but sometimes it has unintended consequences

Writing Girl, Stolen opened my eyes to some unique problems people who are blind face.

Electric cars seem like a great idea, but it turns out their nearly silent operation isn't so great for blind folks who might be relying on their ears to tell them if a car is coming.

And now that many schools are turning to Kindles for reading, that's affecting blind kids as well - and not in a good way.
