A Brief History of Technology
Technology began long before recorded history. When the earliest humans first made tools out of stones, technology was invented. That's what technology is all about: people creating ways to satisfy their needs. Technology does not have to be complex. A stone ax is technology just as much as a computer is.
All people have basic needs and wants. Technology helps people satisfy these by creating products and services. Our essential needs -- for food, water, shelter, communication, transportation, protection, health care, and recreation -- have not changed throughout history. How we satisfy them, on the other hand, has changed dramatically.
