What is Technology anyway?

I found a very interesting definition today:


Technology is a human innovation in action that involves the generation of knowledge and processes to develop systems that solve problems and extend human capabilities.

This is wonderful because it means our IT Services folks can be more than just “computer guys”.  I’m tired of thinking of technology as “gadget studies” and would rather focus on finding the right tools, electronic or otherwise, that enhance our ability to teach, learn, think, communicate, exist, and so on!
