What is technology…?

What is Technology…

From wikipedia.org (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology):

Technology can be viewed as an activity that forms or changes culture.  Additionally, technology is the application of math, science, and the arts for the benefit of life as it is known. A modern example is the rise of communication technology, which has lessened barriers to human interaction and, as a result, has helped spawn new subcultures; the rise of cyberculture has, at its basis, the development of the Internet and the computer.

I chose this passage specifically for the phrase, “an activity that forms or changes culture”.  According to this, Technology could truly take any form… say, TEXT?  Text is technology because is has helped to change culture.  At the very least, text (the way it is used today) has really changed pop culture.  Maybe I am trying too hard, but it seems to me that the Text is Technology and Technology is Text.
