I found the first tenet of the manifesto to be the most interesting:
"The Critical Engineer considers Engineering to be the most transformative language of our time, shaping the way we move, communicate and think. It is the work of the Critical Engineer to study and exploit this language, exposing its influence."
This rule of the document explains how technology has become such a crucial part of our everyday lives that we basically depend on it. It has been intertwined so complexly into our daily rituals that it is considered a language -- and it has helped the world become more closely connected. It is a Critical Engineer's job to facilitate these interactions, discovering its intricacies and publishing them so the rest of the world can come to a greater understanding of what the future holds for us.
I think this guideline is especially interesting because it kind of relates to the main topic of my first year writing class, the ethics of human-enhancement technologies. Soon it will become normal for people to be partially bionic or extend their lifespans or edit their genes, which might constitute a complete reformation of society because these technologies are changing what it means to be human. Someday soon our thoughts could actually be read, controlled, and changed by technology.
