3.1. Technology is a wonderful, amazing, always-changing bags of tricks that help the human being to live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives. Megantz (2002)

3.1.1. To a scientist, technology is the end product of one's research.

3.1.2. To an engineer, it is a tool or process that can be employed to build better products or solve technical problems.

3.1.3. To an attorney, it is intellectual property to be protected and guarded.

8. Technology represents the combination of human understanding of natural laws and phenomena accumulated since ancient times to make things that fulfil our needs and desires or that perform certain functions (Karatsu, 1990)

8.1. Technology is the means by which we apply our understanding of the natural world to the solution of practical problems. It is a combination of “hardware” (buildings, plant and equipment) and “software” (skills, knowledge, experiences together with suitable organizational and institutional arrangement). Miles (1995)

9. I believe that technology - according to my understanding - is necessary in every single thing in our life or an action we need to do positively and negatively. Technology is to invent, to improve, to develop, and to maintain. Whether it is tangible, or sensible. It is how you act and to improve your behaviour if needed. It is to create a solution or to maintain better one. On other hand, it is a way to use it to kill people by building new weapons or to create problems to other countries. The commercial technology to affect children's brains through bad video games or the improper virtual competition between what they actually have and what they see.

10. Knowledge is increasingly being recognised as a vital organisational resource that gives market leverage and competitive advantage (Nonaka and Taekuchi, 1995; Leonard-Barton, 1995).

10.1. In particular, knowledge has become a substance to be “managed” in its most literal sense.

10.1.1. Polanyi (1967) considered human knowledge by starting from the fact that we know more than we can tell.
