2.2. "Human’s use of technology involves not only machines (e.g., computer hardware) and instruments, but also includes structured relations with other humans, machines, and the environment. In short, technology is more than a collection of machines and devices" (Isman, 2012)

8. As mentioned by Kelvin Kelly (2010) in his talk about technology he says that "Technology is anything useful invented by the human mind" (Kelly, 2010)

9. "Thus, technology is said to routinely increase the productivity of labor in different countries, different eras, and different civilizations."(Isman ,2012)

10. How have my ideas on Technology changed?

10.1. I now view technology as more than a gadget to be held or a machine to help me, but also as an idea that can implement growth in society. This is based on the involvement of organizations and people, who create both physical technology and share practical application towards technology.

10.1.1. "Any practical application of knowledge or manner of completing a task." (Isman, 2012)

11. "Our rules for driving are a kind of social technology imposed on top of the hardware of the car. The simultaneous actions of 45 people forming an orchestra are also a kind of technology that binds together instruments, people, and music." (Dyer, 2019)

11.1. Technology incorporates not only physical hardware like machines, calculators and phones, but also the application of ideas to help the further growth of society.

11.1.1. This is why new technology is important and is constantly changing.
