If a thousand lines of letters in UNIX qualifies as a technology (the computer code for a web page), then a thousand lines of letters in English (Hamlet) must qualify as well. They both can change our behavior, alter the course of events, or enable future inventions.

Its Unix, not UNIX. It’s characters, not letters. And it sure as hell ain’t a web page. As for Hamlet, I’ll let you go on that one…
Also, the technology is called “writing”. Really people? Are we that clueless?
