technorealist
n. A person who has a balanced and realistic view of technology.

Example Citation:
"In response to these views, the dissidents wrote a manifesto calling for 'techno-realism' and calling themselves techno-realists. This manifesto—instantly given its own World Wide Web site at www.technorealism.org—rejects the 'louder voices at the extremes' in favor of a more balanced consensus, a 'fertile middle ground between techno-utopianism and neo-Luddism.'"
—Edward Rothstein, "A rather benign declaration on the Internet is treated as a revolutionary manifesto," The New York Times
