KDS you are really going to town, great job! I just wanted to let you know that articles should start with the subject, in bold font. So this article should start out "Technological development is... [definition]." I'd do it, but it looks like you are editing now and I don't want to edit conflict you. Keep on chooglin' Jazzman831 14:14, 25 August 2007 (EDT)
Technologically it is independent of commerce.
The reason I would order Agriculture under commerce is because the advent of Agriculture was the root cause for the beginning of all other meaningful commerce. Before a certain segment of the human race has Agriculture established nearly 100% of the population is consumed with hunting & gathering food. After Agricultural technology is in place, a smaller segment of the population can devote their time to food production while other people focus on the production of other products. But this specialization would not occur if the craftsmen could not trade their special product for food. Thus Agriculture in effect is the catalyst that started all commerce.
