I've got a slight problem with technology. No, it's not that it makes us lazy or that it hurts the environment or that we're becoming too dependent on it and if the machines try to turn on us we will be inevitably defeated. None of that. In fact, I like technology as much as the next guy. Unless the next guy is Amish, of course, then I like it slightly more than the next guy.

No my problem is with the word. You see,"-logy" means the study of. Biology is the study of bio, or life. Chronology is the study of chrono, or time. Zoology is the study of things you might find in a zoo.

Clearly, technology is the study of techno, strange music heard in European discos. And I for one am not a fan.
