Back when I was in school, a computer literacy class often meant learning how to program in BASIC or PASCAL, which gave one extremely useful skills sharpening students’ sense of logic and using mathematical proofs. This twofold presentation takes into consideration the development of technology as the outcome of a process originating within and guided by the practice of engineering, by standards on which only limited societal control is exercised, as well as the consequences for society of the implementation of the technology so created, which result from processes upon which only limited control can be exercised.
According to Niiniluoto, the theoretical framework of technology as the practice that is concerned with what the world should be like rather than is, the framework that forms the counterpoint to the descriptive framework of science, is design science.
Ellul, for example, has characterized engineers as the high priests of technology, who cherish technology but cannot steer it. Hans Jonas (1984) has argued that technology requires an ethics in which responsbility is the central imperative because for the first time in history we are able to destroy the earth and humanity.
Countless options of nanotechnology in virtual, parallel reality construction appears to be essential regression concerning subquantum technology. Like Firsch, I too believe that technology promotes laziness, and gives uneducated people a way to make things even easier than before.
From the telephone to our state-of-the-art video call cell phones, technology is always there to help us be in touch with our loved ones. Most corporations and institutions use Information Technology to enable functions that drive their core business. In this sense, there is significant debate about whether technology will benefit us or prejudice in the future.
