I can't agree with you David.

Viewing my own posts over the past year, *more* than 50% of my posts are on the topic of biotechnology (science + technology). And, most of my posts on art are laced with refernces to science and technology.

Also, I notice that most of the respondees to the thread that I started on an art topic a couple of weeks ago, that developed numerous subthreads, were not "artists." And, the artists who responded did so with a lot of technical savvy.

This is a very good sign.
