# unix & holistic technologies
Every technology lies on a spectrum: prescriptive technologies, like car
assembly lines, have dependence on large non-individual organizational
structures in order to function; while holistic tech is self-reliant and
depends on little, like a personal garden. Or a unix program. Most
things lie somewhere in between.
What the consequences of a society heavily dependent on prescriptive
technologies? What is its cost of adoption? Where can freedom be found
in taking control of the toolchain? Let's look at where the unix
philosophy and the web fit in.
