    Logically it doesn't make sense because on one side, you're saying "depuis son début", then you're adding "il y a quelques ans"

    "Since it's beginning, technology has paved the way for many pass-times, a few years ago"
    (the 'a few years ago' doesn't really make sense)

    Depuis son début , la technologie a donné naissance a quelques nouveaux passe-temps.

    No need for il y a because the début is obviously in the past.
