Sometimes I stumble across humourous images and quotes in which I instantly find a deeper meaning. Here are a few recent ones, and my accompanying thoughts.
The first I stumbled across at Bryan Kavanagh's blog (which is worth a read).
The next image can be found all over the web now, but to me provides insights into exactly how new technology integrates into society.
I also stumbled across this quote -
As Douglas Adams wrote in 1999, "Anything that gets invented after you're thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it until it's been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really." Yes, the world is different now. Do try to keep up
This is an important one to keep in the back of our minds when we imagine seeing society deteriorate before our eyes. I recall that the ancient Greeks worried about the proliferation of written texts, because it meant people no longer needed to remember and recite long passages. Only if you could remember a passage word for word did it show you truly understood its meaning.
