A Luddite

A Luddite. What's a Luddite. I just ran across that word in a newspaper article that was talking about technology. And I gather this word may have something to do with technology and the industrial revolution maybe. And what's that industrial revolution all about anyway, is that when people protested the invention of the machine to replace human beings or something. And this is a historical word to me, someone who may be stuck in the stone age of the year 1400 and has not yet advanced to the twentieth century of superman and the Jetsons space age. And what was life before the invention of all of these high tech devices that surround humanity at the moment. What was life like before the invention of computers, the internet, social media, web 2.0, e mail, fax machines, cell phones, answering machine, compact disc, dvd's, 8 track tapes, web cams, information overload, satellites, jets, airplanes, trains, television, radio, guns, firearms, telephones, caller i.d., call waiting, the upc bar code, scanner technology everything, you're on candid camera everywhere you go on planet earth surveillance spy devices, gps global positioning system tracking devices, social security numbers, blackberry crackberries, laptops and a lot of other machinery and devices that passes me now. And has humanity become mechanical desensitized robots and slaves to the machine and the computer with the invention of these devices. What was life like to sit around the fire for conversation. Was life before the invention of technology and high tech devices a more simpler time. And what does that word Luddite mean again, does that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have an entry for that? Luddite, that sounds like an historical, antique stone age word to me. Technology has changed the world.
