Thomas P. Hughes Human-Built World: How to Think about Technology and Culture and David E. Nyes Technology Matters: Questions to live with.

As I’ve been diving into hundreds of pages of literature lately I’ve learned to see technology in a new perspective. I’ve been amazed by tech as long as I can remember. I’ve felt it mattered on a grand scale, intimately intertwining with us, but not exactly how. So, now I’ve had one of those moments where feeling meets theory and everything gets clear.

This is not the least due to David E. Nyes fantastic book with the title Technology Matters – Questions to live with. To give you the short short version technology matters because it is in fact an inseparable part of us. As far back as archaeologists can find traces of our ancestors there have been tools, and hence technology.

Technology clearly does matter, which is also the matter of this blog along with tidbits and reflections on the media landscape.

So there it is. I’m off. This is my private blog, no one else is involved, no one else is to be blamed.

Welcome!
