The Nature of Technology – W. Brian Arthur

from Arthur, ” Technology expert James Newcomb, talking of the business of providing energy efficiency services, says: ‘ Doing it well entails knowledge of literally thousands of individual technologies, together with the capability to assimilate and optimally combine these technologies in patricular applications, taking into consideration interactive effects, control systems, process applications, and the differential economies of energy and demand savings. It’s the skill of a master chef, not a grocer’s buyer.’ “
