This is a bad article.
"Luddite" is used to describe someone who is opposed to inevitable technological change - in fact, someone opposed to technological change that has already come about. The original Luddites, by the author's own arguments, were people opposed to technological change that was already coming about. More importantly, the actions of the Luddites were not unlike the actions of the music or motion picture industries in response to the arrival of torrents and streaming.
Are you worried that children are using the internet too much? You are a Luddite, according to the Telegraph. Do you oppose fracking? Then you're a Luddite; so proclaims a Nevada newspaper. Don't want a smartphone to replace your wallet? You too are a Luddite, Forbes says.
Each of those references to Luddism, taken from the results of a quick Google News search—and, together, fairly representative of how the term is commonly used—has at least one thing in common: They're all wrong.
Do your own Google News search. You'll find that nearly every hit is someone self-identifying as a Luddite. Four hits down, you'll find a much better article that makes a better argument in Slate from a month ago.
