Technology moves forward.

Technological evolution is based on good solutions. A new technology offers a better solution. Business improvement, statistical process improvement all of these move us to a new technology that does the job better. So we use the better technology. This is the counter argument to the idea that technology is capricious or a fad object or a fetish symbol. I learned this reading
Jacques Ellul The Technological Society, (New York: Vintage 1967).
This book also describes how technology will run over traditional societies and religions.
This post is for my course in e-learning and digital technology on coursera a new learning technology. #edcmooc.
