I want to begin by prefacing this article with a little background information on why I am even writing this to begin with. During my daily job life I encounter a large variety of individuals. These individuals range from experienced technologists, to business entrepreneurs to venture capitalists to students who have high aspirations and even government officials trying to better their region. Through all of these interactions I have encountered a cross cutting theme of lack of understanding in how to map problems to technology and technology to problems.
Through this article I aim to discuss what is the heart, the very nature of technology, and why we have it. I will also discuss current trends in technology, what problems they solve and how these problems and technology work together.
