Technology vs Science vs Steam

Technology appears to be a fairly recent concept: it starts showing up in books about a hundred years. You can also see how science takes away the mindshare from arts, philosophy, and even religion.

It's also interesting how the peak of "steam" coincides with the birth of "technology." Maybe at the time people realized that steam power is just an instance of a bigger trend.
