When man abdicates the responsibility for controlling technology, the modern city is the most conspicuous, but not the only, evidence. The problem is to create meaningful, systematic interaction between people and technology. Educational programs combining technology and public affairs would provide leadership for interdisciplinary projects to find solutions. Project suggestions and a description of the Princeton University program are included. 13 pp.
