The personality of technology as an industry may contain qualities for which enable a cooperation between technology and the environment.  Lumber, Richardson, and Sheffield (2017) potentially identified predictors for a personality that values a connected with nature.   Information systems, information technology, or social media perform an emerging role in society.  Figueiredo and Bolaño (2017) compared the development of social media to the concept of Brecht for creating an organization of a disconnected apparatus of communication.  Figueiredo and Bolaño (2017) also referred to the characterization of social media economy as surveillance capitalism or a military-digital complex.  The connection to nature of the technology may be elevated by understanding the traits of eco-friendly perspectives (Lumber et al., 2017).  Neto, Voeks, Dias, and Alves (2012) discussed the relationship between nature and culture through symbolism in traditional religions.

Changes in the field of information technology may require the assistance of volunteers envisioning the moral purpose.    Bristow (1983) reviewed the international trafficking of women in the early 20th century and discussed the financial and tactical volunteering to diminish trafficking. Mackett (2020) studied the effects of social assistance grants in alleviating poverty and improving labour market outcomes.  Forner, Jones, and Berry (2020) explored the components of autonomy, competence, and relatedness in the motivation of self-determination theory.

 Information technology is in an early stage and may be considered more of an art than a science.  Early medicine also began as an art form.  Kaptchuk and Kerr (2004) explained the transition of medicine from an art to a science in the development of the randomized control trial.  To understand the problems of information technology may require a review of the original laws of the field.  Kurak (2016) discussed the rules and principles Kant defines as a priori for judging in decision.

The symbolism of traditional rituals provided communication tools for collaboration in early information systems.    Keesing (2012) explained the shared understanding of symbolism in traditional rituals may supersede their interpretive meaning.  Avetisian (2018) described a perspective of Jung for the unconscious to communicate through symbolism.  The symbolism of modern information systems may reflect the potential for the field to connect to nature.
