That couldn't be farther from the truth.
The evolution of technology happens not because someone enjoys doing it, but because it serves a very real need.
Take Sindome for instance... It serves a very real purpose: To provide Johnny and his cadre with a playground in which they can excercise their coding muscles in a way which is both useful in a real world sense, and fun. Were it simply for creating new technology for the sake of creating new technology, it would have gotten scraped a long time ago. There's even a community built around the very premice: People who enjoy playing within the virtual realm created by said technology for personal enjoyment and enrichment.
But really the better question is: Why am I telling you this? I'm a programmer defending technology and I'm talkin about Chewbacca. Does that make sence? Ladies and Gentlemen, I am not making any sense. None of this makes sense. And you have to remember that when considering this topic: It dosn't make sense. If Chewbacca lives on Endor you must aquit. I know it seems pointless, but ladies and gentlemen, this is Chewbacca. Now think about that for one minute. That does not make sense. Why am I talking about Chewbacca when the topic is technology? Why? I'll tell you why: I don't know. It dosn't make sense. If Chewbacca does not make sense, you must aquit.
The defense rests.
