Douglas Adams’ analysis of technology:

Douglas Adams' analysis of technology:

  1. everything that's already in the world when you're born is just normal;

  2. anything that gets invented between then and before you turn 35 is incredibly exciting and creative and, given opportunity, you can make a career out of it;

  3. anything that gets invented after you're 35 is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilization as we know it until it's been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really.

I'm glad 35 is more than a decade off. We better invent some really cool stuff in the next ten years.
