We’re thinking about independence in this edition of Tech Writer This Week. Defined as a condition in which a person, state, or nation exercises self-government and determination. Children strive for it, the people of countries have fought for it, entrepreneurs dream of it and Scotland may possibly vote for it later today.

The child is dependent on larger protection often not seen, the entrepreneur is dependent on sales and countries dependent on everything from trade to the power if its enemies.
