This past week I finished work on Module 3’s subject of evolutionary technologies and rhymes of history technology. Naturally, like everything else with my PhD program, the terminology was completely unknown to me. As luck would have it, I was well aware of both concepts; just didn’t know the technical terms. An evolutionary technology is a technology that is continually developing and changing. A rhyme of history describes a new technology developed from an existing technology or revising a technological breakthrough from the past An example of both would be the mobile phone; seems like a new model is coming out every few months. I guess the takeaway for this week is that technology is similar to Darwin’s theory of evolution…the strong survive while the weak die. I suppose that’s why I’m typing on this lovely 13in MacBook Air instead of typing this in a room-sized computer!
