Renaissance Revolution - Technological revolution - Netflix

Technological revolution is a relatively short period in history when one technology (or better a set of technologies) is replaced by another technology (or by the set of technologies). It is an era of an accelerated technological progress characterized not only by new innovations, but also their application and diffusion. A difference between technological revolution and technological change is not clearly defined. The technological change we could see as an introduction of an individual (single) new technology while the technological revolution as a period in which more new technologies are adopted at the almost same time. These new technologies or technological changes are usually interconnected—as the third Kranzberg's law of technology says: “Technology comes in packages, big and small.”

Renaissance Revolution - Relation to "technological revolution" and "technical revolution" - Netflix

Sometimes the notion of “technological revolution” is used for the Second Industrial Revolution in the period about 1900, but in this case the designation “technical revolution” would be more proper. When the notion of technical revolution is used in more general meaning it is almost identical with technological revolution, but technological revolution requires material changes in used tools, machines, energy sources, production processes. Technical revolution can be restricted to changes in management, organisation and so called non-material technologies (e.g. a progress in mathematics or accounting).
