What is Technology?

Many have tried to give technology a negative connotation. Some say it has killed decency in modern society. I disagree. I think that technology, or more specifically the advancement in technology, is what gives society a reason to persist. On one level technology provides a huge amount of jobs and development in the economy, especially relative to other economies around the world. On another, technology gives people a purpose to work. It is true that most of the technologies we use today are primitive ones. However, consider the case where all of a sudden technology becomes stagnant. In this case, what is the true function of the University? What is the function of academics? None. People would only need to be trained to do what has already been done.
