Techeology

Lorcan

I coined techeology a while ago to talk about a particular phenomenon that is quite strong in our space.
It is formed from a conflation of technology and ideology. And I use it where it seems that ideology, rather than engineering or identified requirements, is driving a technical discussion.
Conversations around the semantic web, RDF, and related issues are often techeological for example. Indeed, wherever grand conception meets pragmatic resistance, the discussion will become techeological. Think of OSI and CORBA.
