"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, The Salmon of Doubt

Apropos of Lilo's quotes for today, here's an email I received:

"I was visiting my son and daughter-in-law last night, when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

'This is the 21st Century, old man', he said, 'we don't waste money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow my I-Pod.'

I can tell you, that friggin fly never knew what hit it . . .that I-Pad thing is not working well, either."
