Technology Matters - making choices about the tools we use.

16:07, Tue 24 Oct 2006

Why does technology matter? How often do we thing about the implications of our choices of one tool over another? What were the decisions that brought us to our current technological world?

In his new book Technology Matters, Professor David Nye of Warwick's School of Comparative American Studies poses a series of questions challenging us to think a little deeper about the tools and technology surrounding us. From the use (or non-use) of the wheel in North Africa to IMAX theatres at the Grand Canyon, Professor Nye asks how the relationship between us and technology shapes our history and our future?

Professor David Nye was recently awarded the 2005 Leonardo Da Vinci Medal presented by the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT). The medal is the highest recognition from the Society for the History of Technology and is presented to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the history of technology, through research, teaching, publications, and other activities.
