The Natural Order of things

This quote from my favourite author seems to typify most people’s interactions with technology.

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.

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.

Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

– Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt
