“High tech redneck” is a phrase I’ve heard in many, many conversations lately. The term is used to describe those people who are so technologically savvy and wealthy that they don’t need to be reminded to wash their hands. It’s a popular phrase for people who don’t have much time for anything else.
I think that’s a pretty accurate description of the people living in the USA. To me, the term high tech refers to not just the wealth, but also the people who have the wealth and know how to use it. I think the term redneck describes people who dont care about technology the way you might say the term carpenter refers to those who have no interest in carpentry.

I’m not sure that my definition of redneck is really accurate, but I don’t think it matters much. The fact is that many of our attitudes and actions have a high tech component. We believe that technology is the answer to all of the world’s problems and want new and better gadgets for our lives. We also tend to think that technology is our friend, that it’s our friend’s fault that our gadgets are so dumb and useless.
Most of us have a very high tech lifestyle, and we can be very smart and extremely well trained. We can design and build all sorts of things that are not available to most of the world. We are also very good at communicating with other people and being persuasive, and we have a lot of technology skills.
If you have a high tech lifestyle then you are likely to think that you are really smart, that you have all the answers, and that you can fix all of the world’s problems. To be honest, this is a lot like a high tech relationship. You know that you are always right, that you are always right because you are always right, and that you are always right because you are always right.
This is one of those topics that tends to be very contentious among people who do a lot of technology. A lot of tech geeks I know have a very similar worldview. For the most part, they’ve gotten their tech chops from being an engineer or programmer, but they have a lot of common ground. It’s this belief that the technology in our homes and offices is very important as a basis for our lives.
The tech in our homes and offices is just as important as its computer and cell phone counterparts. If you want your home to sparkle and shine, then you need to have nice lighting and good sound insulation. If you want to cook a meal at the perfect temperature, then you need to have the right appliances and heat. If you want your home to be more comfortable and safer, then you need to have better insulation and a better water filter.
In the last several years the tech in homes and offices has come a long way. From the basic home computer, to the smart TV, to the smart home, it seems people are willing to sacrifice a little comfort in order to get a little more of the latest bells and whistles. And it’s not just in the West where this trend is rising. The Japanese are also doing it, and they are doing it for the same reason.
As an example, people are willing to spend the extra money on a smart TV set to get a picture instead of seeing a screen, because, well, its more comfortable. They are also willing to pay more for homes with better insulation, better water filters, and better air filters. So its not just a trend, its a movement.
