I am working on an assignment for my technology and society course: "The Secret Life of Objects" or something to that effect... I have reading Alfred Bester's "The Stars My Destination" as a meditation on social change brought about by teleportation and am thinking along those lines for the less fantastic but no less extraordinary technologies we use all the time.

There's an prof at the U. of Illinois who's job is to write essays on engineering and daily life. (Web site here.)
Not all of his essays are appropriate for your purposes, but quite a bit is.
