hmm...when did ''tech'' become categorized?...

In the recent years, the ''tech industry'' has seemed to include only computer/preriferals manufacturers, internet providers, and digital communication providers.

I'm in the aerospace industry - is that not considered ''high tech''? I think it is, but it seems like that description has migrated away...

So...anyone know when this really started to happen. Is it all the stock investor's or marketing or someone else's doing?

I thought it was considered

Engineering Sciences. Hi Tech is used, but generally it is desiged and engineered. Not bought off the shelf at your local Best Buy.

Just my thought.

High Tech is always moving

As an industry matures it no longer is "high tech".

Ever see any of the early (black and white) "Bewitched" T.V. shows? One question the mortals asked each other was "do you fly" - meaning that if you are rich enough or important enough to fly on an airplane then that was an indication that you were worth talking to. Now, anyone can fly on an airplane.

You can't go into an industry that is (currently) "high tech" and expect it to remain "high tech" for the rest of your career. In fact, if you enter college learning some field that is currently "high tech" then by the time you finish your education and start working in the field then something else will have come along that is now "high tech" and your field no longer isn't.
