Natural Order

This is good! The late intergalactic author and hitchhiker Douglas Adams gives his take on our love-hate relationship with technology:
"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 (1952 - 2001)
