Thought of the Day: We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.

with one comment

I was reading the Economist Espresso today, and ran across a quote from one of my favorite authors of all time, Douglas Adams:

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.

For those not familiar with Douglas Adams, then I highly recommend listening to the original Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Radio Series, read the books, or even see the movie (which wasn’t as bad as it could have been, and better than a lot of other things!)

Douglas Adams unfortunately left this planet too early, and he is still missed.
