The English "tech-" is etymologically derived from the ancient Greek word τέχνη ("techne"), translatable as "craftsmanship", "craft", or "art". For Greeks like Aristotle, τέχνη also referred to the particular form of knowing possessed by (or possessing of) the crafts-person, i.e., know-how.

The purpose of this group is to think big and to bring the whole field of technology into consideration. The group is open to all, but it should be especially helpful to people who work in the field yet are looking for ways to think beyond the box. We'll read and discuss in depth both practical and theoretical writing about technology and its role in modern life. This can include everything from the literature of user experience design and "human factors" in system design, to cognitive science, cultural criticism, and the literature of interpretative phenomenology as applied to technological experiences.
