Human reaction to technology

by · February 24, 2009

Douglas Adams’ “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 15 and 35 is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it."
  3. “Anything invented after you’re 35 is against the natural order of things."
