Properly understood, any new and better way of doing things is technology.
When I read the phrase above by Peter Thiel, I had a flashback to my conversation with Ashran Ghazi, CEO of MaGIC. He was very intrigued about us, a forklift company that was shortlisted for MaGIC program. During our conversation we talked about “technology” and MaGIC, amongst other things.
I highlighted the fact that the use of the term “technology” to be too rigid. Technology should not be used in sole reference to computers, software, apps, etc. Why can’t technology be used in a wider context….mind, thoughts, practises, …. you name it.
As such Ashran commented that we, #EGAN has adopted “technology” well with the establishment of our new brand #SparePartsAsia. It was not only the tech-per-say but also the way we went about doing it, from our concept, process and execution.
So people, the next time we hear or utter the word “technology”, let’s be more open minded. As I always say, throw away the box. Don’t be limited!
