Technology

What is  technology ? I bet that everyone you ask will give you a different definition, depending on the things he/she uses. I’m sure your mother will tell you that  technology  makes her life easy because of all the gadgets that were invented, your younger brother will say  technology  means latest generation computers and high detailed games, you will probably say that it is your mobile phone. I will say for me  technology  is semi-cocked food. It was probably the best invention ever. But it’s just me.

So, we have established how we, the mortals, see  technology . But wouldn’t be really interesting to see what it really is? Well it deals with how a species customs and knowledge of instruments meant to ease the life and how it affects its capability to fit into the environment. This is a general definition.

We, the humans see it as a result of the interaction of different sciences and engineering.

 Technology  is one of those terms that actually cannot be defined. It cam mean everything from a main board to a way of organizing a factory. It can refer to practically everything, because all of the things around us were, at a certain point technological breakdowns.

How can we use it? As such, in specific areas like “medical  technology “, describing only one aspect of science or in expressions like “state-of-the-art-technology”, which is by far more abstract.

We have used  technology  for as far as we existed. It is in our blood to discover all kinds of things meant to ease our life. And if they do not exist, you can bet wee will invent them. Starting with the discovery of fire and with the adaptation of all the things we find in nature to our needs and ending with the World Wide Web and the space satellites launched into the orbit, we managed to turn everything in our favor. And that is  technology . Well, as our ancestors used to say, since the invention of the wheel we’ve learned a great deal about controlling our environment.

 Technology  is every ware around us, permitting us to interact at a global scale. Imagine that! With just a click you can see your friend from the other side of the world in real time. Not just talk to her, but see her, see what she does and how she reacts.

But  technology  brought upon us a great curse too. We didn’t invent only good things. There are a lot of destructive gadgets that do not ease our existence, but only complicate it, or end it. Bang-Bang! And that’s not your kid’s gun, but a real one that can end your life in a heart beat.

All in all  technology  is what makes the world go round every day. Well, not exactly. Magic, or the laws of nature make that.  Technology  is everything else, all the things that can’t be blamed on magic. Ant that’s about 99,9% of the things that you use in life. So, VIVA  Technology .
