What is a Neo-Luddite?

"A true neo-Luddite is not against technological progress, per se. Rather, it is the inappropriate use of technology that concerns the neo-Luddite. For example, neo-Luddites are in favour of using the internet as a mechanism for transmitting ideas."

A classic example of a modern day neo-Luddite is David Suzuki who argues strongly against changes arising from the science of genetics, such as human cloning and genetically modified foods.

Some websites of interest to Neo-Luddites, as well as a number of other sites that could be considered to be contrary to neo-luddism, are given below.
