It means the reflex to try to solve any problem with technology, without questioning the assumption if every societal problem can be solved with technology.
There is, by the way, one very important side effect of this: Once we give a problem to a computer to solve, it’s suddenly not our problem any more. If it goes wrong, that’s a technicality now. A great way to deflect responsibility.
@maralorn There's an important rule about digitalization that goss into a similar direction: If you digitize a shitty process, you'll get a shitty, digital process.
