“I’ve come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies”

“I’ve come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:

1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.

2. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.

3. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.”

– Douglas Adams (entire original article is well worth reading)

    Great essay.

    “Newsreaders
    still feel it is worth a special and rather worrying mention if, for instance,
    a crime was planned by people ‘over the Internet.’ They don’t bother to mention
    when criminals use the telephone or the M4, or discuss their dastardly plans
    ‘over a cup of tea,’ though each of these was new and controversial in their
    day.”
