There is this love-hate relationship between science and Tech, proponents feverishly arguing since forever. As if there existed a clear line between the two, as if one could be defined and progress without the other. I being a self-declared nomad, rarely believe in boundaries and merrily charter all territories that my inner child wishes.
However, one explanation for the need to differentiate between the two, is the following. When you want to save someone’s life, the idea is not so much about “take as much time as you want but do it aesthetically and efficiently” as to “do it quick with whatever is available”. So practical use of science, respecting the time, space and expense boundaries is Tech, Do you agree?
