The study of people who do not trust technology. These people (Techo
: combination of tech echo) are known for following up an e-mail by phoning, ostensibly to "see if you got it," but are echoing the exact contents of the e-mail, thus rendering it redundant and annoying the shit out of you.
Jamie: Have you seen that recent report from Geek Weekly about the Techonolgy 101 class at MIT?
Sara: No, but I'd be interested in finding out why people insist on asking me if I got their e-mail. Unless there is a massive system failure, I got their e-mail. I just chose to ignore it.
