Ecosystems are living, breathing things.


Read both of these quotes today, direct from my PC World newsfeed:

"Google Glass serves to stretch the technology ecosystem to even greater lengths."--Patrick Moorhead, analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.

"Google, Amazon and others may not be perfect at keeping malware out of their stores, but the risk increases dramatically outside of their ecosystems."--Chester Wisniewski, senior security advisor, Sophos Canada.

Brittanica Online defines an ecosystem thus: The complex of living organisms, their physical environment, and all their interrelationships in a particular unit of space.

 I resent the fact that analysts and technogeeks are attempting to take an inanimate concept like technology and try to make it more organic, more tenable and natural.
