Kranzbergs laws of technology – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Melvin Kranzberg’s six laws of technology state:

    1st – Technology is neither good nor bad; nor is it neutral.

    2nd – Invention is the mother of necessity.

    3rd – Technology comes in packages, big and small.

    4th – Although technology might be a prime element in many public issues, nontechnical factors take precedence in technology-policy decisions.

    5th – All history is relevant, but the history of technology is the most relevant.

    6th – Technology is a very human activity – and so is the history of technology.
