Technology Week

18 years ago today a computer defeated the world master in chess.

Technology is;
* the manipulation of natural resources into forms that serve human purposes; the breaking up, combining and reshaping of material into tools and instruments to help, extend and enhance human abilities and promote human potential.
* resources of the earth created by and impregnated with human energy.
* the material culture of Homo sapiens.
* an extension of the human existence, an interface with the world.
* everything man-made.

There is primitive technology, stone technology, mechanical technology, electronic technology, innovational technology and other forms of technology.

We are technological beings. We have never existed without technology* and would quickly disappear without it.
*(Stone technology began among hominids more than 2 million years before the appearance of Homo sapiens.)

Junk technology, like junk food, hardens the arteries of human interaction.

Welcome to Technology Week!
