yeah, interesting how talk of technology started
τεχνολογία, "treatment of grammar"

>1610s, "a discourse or treatise on an art or the arts"
>"study of mechanical and industrial arts" (Century Dictionary, 1902, gives examples of "spinning, metal-working, or brewing") is first recorded 1859
>High technology attested from 1964; short form high-tech is from 1972

Now a whack mass noun. ..."Technology is not found in unbounded extents, like air. But english "technology" is a mass noun. "Technologies" is the plural of some individual noun, like "a technology" or "some technology," though "a technology" still denotes picking an unit out of a group of identical units"... But that's taking it for granted.
