4.2. "Technology is anything useful invented by a mind" (Kevin Kelly, 2009, TED talk.)

4.3. “technology is not just the phones in our pockets and the laptops in our bags. When we use these pieces of hardware we are taking part in something much bigger than ourselves, something that affects us individually and socially" (Dyer, 2009).

5. What I think now

5.1. Now I think that technology is anything like a pencil, art or camera. We can not survive without technology.
