It is interesting to research the history of technology in the world and get a few different perspectives on it. Some say it was one of the worst inventions of all time. Others say it was one of the best inventions of all time. I think there are some who say it was the most profound invention in the history of the world. Maybe it’s one of the most profound inventions of all time.
It turns out that history is not always kind to technology, and that you can be a technology in one part of the world and have a different viewpoint on it in another part. In some sense, the history of technology is like the history of all stories: it can be difficult to pin down, and most people who’ve ever written a book or watched a documentary about it are not a 100% sure of the outcome, so they write and watch as if they were 100%.
Maybe we should all look at the history of our own technology and see how other countries have invented it in a way that’s not quite ours. It seems like some of the most powerful technologies we’ve ever seen were invented in places that were not so advanced. For example, cars were first invented in a place like China, then moved to Japan, then to Europe and then to North America.
The video of the book/documentary was made by BBC journalist and programmer Michael Aspel, who also made the video of the documentary. He makes the point that the technology used to create these technologies are not always the most advanced. For example, I believe that the video I watched about the development of the internet was made with a computer that was still in the 1970s.
But at the end of the day, we all want a little piece of the tech that helped create the modern world. We want to enjoy the fruits of our labor without any of the cost. So we use things like cars and computers to get from A to B, and we don’t always leave them at that point.
In my opinion, technology is an evolutionary process. So if something works once, it will work on the same model, and over and over. If a piece of technology becomes obsolete or not a great choice, then you are left to reinvent it and use it in entirely new ways. It just happens that a certain number of people have a particular level of technology knowledge, and they get to use it as opposed to making it available for anyone else to use. But that’s just me.
I see this all the time. The people who use technology the most are those who are in a position to make it easy for others. This is true in many areas, not just computers. But for example, in the field of education, we have people who are great at teaching, and those who are great at teaching are also great at getting kids to do their homework. But they are also great at teaching, and so they are good at both.
And the same is true for technology. We have people who are great at making technology available to everyone, and great at making it easy for others to use it. But we have people who are great at making it easy for others to use it. And so we have a small group of people who are great at making it easy for people who are great at making it easy for others.
