Perhaps technology needs especial emphasis?
Well yes and no
We all have been using technology for years and years...since the human race began...however as someone said, technology has that name at first when "the artifact or whatever" is new, a novelty, and then well we forget it is technology.
For instance, I read somewhere that the alfabeth is one of the first pieces of technology we had and that because of their use and the fact that it becomes a taken-for-granted, we forgot how it started, we forgot it was technology. And maybe some didnt believe in it then, as now people do not believe in current technological developments.
And for a while, maybe always we become shocked to the word technology, we are resistant to have technology in our lives "I am not into that, I am not a geek".
So yes, technology needs a especial place, yes, but not one in which only geeks can go into, but a friendly place in which everybody can go and get something useful or a couple of very good ideas.
