Backgrounder

What is High Technology?

There is no escaping it: we live in a high-tech world. We drive to work in computer-controlled car s [virtually all modern cars have microchip-guided sensors]; we listen to music, watch videos and communicate using portable digital devices, and we log on to computers and the internet at work and at home. Even the local movie house has gone high-tech, with digital projectors displaying the output from digital media instead of motion picture film.

In the world of business, high technology is an umbrella term referring to any industry that applies scientific and technical knowledge to the design and development of new products or processes. Subsectors include aerospace, biotechnology, information technology, electronic media/digital gaming, robotics, advanced alternative energy and nuclear energy, among others.

Current Topic


     11/17 - Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?
For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.

Louisiana Public Square explores some of the challenges that the state’s hunters and anglers face on “Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?” Wednesday, November 22 at 7p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, November 21)
