    When will technology outpace our maturity to use it?

    Will we ever reach a breaking point? Will we ever self-destruct? Will there ever be a price for all this convenience?

    I think we have already done this. Look around you.

    I think it may get so complicated that we may not even understand. Of course like springboard said is kinda true to some extent.

    Likely it already has. Computers are capable of managing more things that we use them for throughout the spectrum of everything from our daily work to space exploration.  Although computers posses an incredible ability to manage tasks and make calculations and predictions, man must possess the knowledge of how something should work in order to successfully program the computer for that task. A good example of this might be the proposed space travel to Mars and return. There seems to be some real challenges with transitioning back to low altitude orbit on the return which man must understand before he can ever hope to program the computer systems to intergrate and pull it off.  WB
