Belladonna gives me crap about my "tech illiteracy" on a regular basis.
I ask her if she ever programed in FORTRAN or would recognize a phase diagram or T-T-T diagram for iron-carbon alloys.
She is absolutely sure that everything new is better in every way than everything old. To her, "technology" is identically-the-same as the latest Apple smartphone release.
I am not a total Luddite. There are some technologies I embrace but technology for the sake of technology leaves me cold. Technology is a multiplier but zero times anything is still zero.
Jerry Warren, an electrician I used to work with, once told me that the difference between a PLC and a computer is that a PLC services the process first while a computer services its own operating system first.
I am firmly in the camp of preferring technologies that service my needs first.
