Technopolies! (now you're just making up words)
There are two extreme types of people with different perspectives on technology. One, those who think any advancement in gaining knowledge is nothing but a burden. Second, those who see only what new technologies can do and are incapable of imagining what they will undo (technophiles).
New technologies create new definitions of old terms (for example- wisdom becoming indistinguishable from knowledge). Control of particular technology= accumilation of power and formation of conspiracy against those who have no access to the specialized knowledge made available by the technology. The goods and bads of new technology are not distributed equally.
New technologies vs. old technologies.

Photographer's Note "I like the contrast here. This image reflects somehow the difference between the upper-class living in luxury and the old town itself..."

A new technology does not add or subtract something. It changes everything. Mainly, new technologies that alter the structure of our interests: the things we think about, the things we think with, and the arena in which thoughts develop is TECHNOPOLIES.
I think this is a great quote- "Give me matter and motion, and I will construct the world" (Descartes).
