Beniger, 1986[edit]

The term technology is intended not in the narrow sense of practical or applied science but in the more general sense of any intentional extension of a natural process ... Technology may therefore be considered as roughly equivalent to that which can be done, excluding only those capabilities that occur naturally in living systems.
