While this is not a commonly used way of using the word "analog",in this report the authors mean something very specific. Theyrefer to the fact that:• digital technologies come from previously analog technologies,which provide its technological foundation• analog technologies are still overwhelmingly dominating theworld, which provides the foundation for the digital age• other complementary factors are needed to create impact fromdigital technologies•other complementary factors areneeded to create impact from digitaltechnologieso Some people say that new generations of automobiles will lead to an end ofgasoline stations, as we will simply plug cars into outlets or feed them with otheralternative energy sources.

Replacing"Politicians and entrepreneurs alike have claimed thatthe Internet is a tool for total control. Digitalcommunication and interactions are recorded, monitoredand analyzed by secret services, national securityagencies, and private enterprises as part of theirsurveillance practices." This attitude is an example of:a) Technological determinism b) Social constructivisma) Technological determinismPositive legacy of the bubbleconditions for full expansionThe principle of "recursiveness" in technologicalsystems implies that:• technologies are built from a hierarchy of technologies• every digital technology contains a recursive computerprogram• bigger systems are made of small systems which areexactly the sametechnologies are built from ahierarchy of technologiesThe result of combinations in the evolution of technologyis that "the more there is to invent with, the ________ willbe the number of inventions".
