The term came to be in the 1800's when the Industrial Revolution began in England. Many people felt that the new factory machines would replace humans in the manufacturing process and that there would be wide-spread unemployment which would lead to all kinds of problems for the nation.
Precious Angel's daddy is who originally called me a Luddite because I was always exploding computers and belly-aching (okay, whining) about all the troubles I had with technology. I felt it added a lot of stress to my life that I just didn't need.
Slowly, slowly this has changed. This weekend as I was piled up on my bed on top of my made up bed, I realized that I had embraced using technology to a huge extent.
There I sat. I was actually working on the lap-top while I looked up email on an I-pad to quote in the document on my computer. I was texting with Pantster about our new website and had my Kindle on the charger. Needless to say it was an epiphany. Somehow without realizing it I had lost my Luddite status.
What is your favorite kind of technology?
