Technological Tropes

Go To

You take a lever and a pulley and a winch and a wedge,
You get a labyrinth of aqueducts and pyramid steps
Before the Jesus, Archimedes on that miracle tech
Year Zero, you could feel the future rearing its head
Put a shoe on a horse, shoot a man with a gun,
Steam power, bifocals, and mechanical funk,
Manipulate electricity, no, it cannot be done,
Yes it can, ain't a dam that can cancel the flood
Aesop Rock, "Mindful Solutionism"

Tropes pertaining to technology, those who use it, and people's attitudes towards it.
