Technology as a verb

Read this post from A Wandering Eyre. Jane talks of her Freshman Comp class learning to use the library. Asked to come up with synonyms for “technology,” they surprised her:

“These students, about 8 years younger than myself, think of what they do with technology as opposed to the object of technology. Their attitudes are completely different than what I expected.”

    I’ve been trying to decide

    I’ve been trying to decide if this is really different than how I see technology. Is this a function of our environment? I live in a world that is always connected. I am connecting with colleagues, students, friends and family for most of the day in some fashion, and I often remind myself that sometimes my connectivity is different than others.
