Many thanks Martha for your balanced look at what you termed elsewhere the
god of technology.

I see that you interpret the word _technology_ a little differently. I use
the following definition to keep me humble: "Technology is the systematic
application of knowledge to achieve practical tasks". I think it is
cobbled from a couple of dictionaries, I claim no authorship.

Many thanks.
