So what is technology? Most people would be able to come up with some easy answers, primarily revolving around electronic gadgets. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines technology as the use of science in industry, engineering, etc., to invent useful things or to solve problems. So why does that matter? It is a misconception that technology is a modern-day phenomenon and only applies to electronics – technology applies to the tools and designs of the pyramids thousands of years ago, and to the specifically designed hand tools of the Amish. Technology is not just about electronics, it is about applying scientific principles to our lives and businesses to improve them.
A little about me. Ever since I was a child I was interested in technology – I’ve always enjoyed seeing how things worked and trying to improve them. I placed no boundaries on my endeavors, working to understand and improve almost any system I could; computer, electrical, mechanical, operational, people, and processes. I served 6 years in the U.S. Navy as a Nuclear Electrician’s Mate. I currently have over 10 years of industrial operations experience, primarily in power generation (both Coal and Nuclear power plants). I hold a Bachelor’s in Nuclear Energy Engineering Technology from Thomas Edison State College, and expect to have my Executive Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Nevada, Reno completed in the middle of August 2015.
Through this blog, I plan on sharing my thoughts, ideas, and successes about understanding and application of different types of technology. I hope my blog posts will help you throughout your life and endeavors, or at least intrigue you to think deeper to improve aspects of your own life.
