From the same article he cited

>>Ajax is not a single technology, but a group of technologies. HTML and CSS can be used in combination to mark up and style information.

>The term Ajax has come to represent a broad group of web technologies that can be used to implement a web application that communicates with a server in the background, without interfering with the current state of the page. In the article that coined the term Ajax"

The man cherry picked parts of the article supported his argument and ignored the parts in the *same* article that contradicted him.

AJAX is used extensively on on Facebook, Yahoo, Google, Microsoft and just about every high traffic website on the internet. Every time you update data on the server with out a page refresh you are using AJAX. ****, It is even used on this page to post comments. To say that AJAX is not pervasive demonstrative of gross ignorance of the state of the internet and web development as a whole.

As far as techniques nor being the same as a technology... A "set of techniques" fits the very definition of a technology itself.

"Technology is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques, crafts, systems, methods of organization, in order to solve a problem, improve a preexisting solution to a problem, achieve a goal, handle an applied input/output relation or perform a specific function."

If you think about it, creating a steel from iron ore is nothing more than a set of techniques. Given the nature and history of his arguments, I am sure this chuckle head will find issue with that as well and conjure up some logic fallacy riddled argument tho contradict that as well
