<color red>N</color><color green>e</color><color blue>w</color> Things to Us

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, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
