modified behavioural patterns/experience in human beings in order to accommodate the requirements of technology - for example - you have to put your hand in front of a sensor at the tap in order to have a drink of water and assume an odd and ungainly position.
We need to make this product user friendly and eliminate too much technosurdia.

I'm fed up with technosurdia in shops - I had to wait 15 minutes for the card reader to accept my credit card.

a place (usually in the countryside) which is completely free from man made noise
Oh fantastic - we've entered a hushzone - I can't hear the road anymore, just the wonderful bird song

Why is it that whenever there is a hushzone, people feel the need to disturb it by mowing their lawn, trimming their hedge, or chainsawing a tree?
