Maybe more lives will be saved at a lower cost. Maybe people who might have enjoyed employment in SAR will be able to enjoy employment in other fields.

Maybe droid rangers will be used to monitor hikers and alert us to danger, and reduce the need for rescues.

Maybe some wilderness areas will not allow droids and drones. I hope so, I think, but don’t even want to think about it even though I do.

I think of Silicon Valley executives who have begun to doubt that their technology is good and have started protecting their children from it, as in limiting screen time, like this.
