Old tools reflect the tasks they were designed to perform and the people who have utilized them. For instance, the wear of a shovel or a washboard reflects the history and memory of their years of use. Tools also define the role technological advances have played in our individual lives and collective cultures.  Some tools are gender specific, while others transcend gender roles. Tools from the early 20th century are artifacts of how our predecessors lived their lives, while 21st century tools, such as a computer’s circuit board, require us to redefine continually the meaning of “tool”.
