I'm writing a report and want to say "a society freed BY technology". Can I write "a technology-freed society" to mean that? Does it sound correct to a native speaker's ears? Or does "a technology-freed society" mean a society freed OF technology? Please help!

I would not suggest writing "a technology-freed society" to mean "a society freed by technology" unless the context is very clear. It's not incorrect, but it does share a meaning with "a society freed from technology", so you'd likely be causing your reader undue confusion. "A society freed by technology" is so nice and succinct already!

what's your interest
