About this blog
The first question that I imagine will come to the mind anyone who stumbles upon this blog (eg, you) is what the heck “technosophy” is supposed to mean. Addressing that question seems to me to be as appropriate an introduction as any to this blog, since you’ll probably otherwise feel inclined to huff off muttering about lunatic bloggers who make up pretentious and meaningless words. Here’s my reasoning:
Techno: from Gk. tekhno-, combining form of tekhne “art, skill, craft, method, system,” probably from PIE base *tek- “shape, make” (cf. Skt. taksan “carpenter,” L. textere “to weave.”
Sophy: suffix meaning “knowledge,” from O.Fr. -sophie, from L. -sophia, from Gk. -sophia, from sophia “skill, wisdom, knowledge.”
Technosophy: The act of engaging with an art, craft, method, or system with wisdom and knowledge.
