Crate of Penguins: A Technology Koan

Sid O’Neill posted a fine piece today on Crate of Penguins.

The existence of something better doesn’t negate the usefulness of what you already own. I don’t have a philosophical objection to these things, and far be it from me to moralize. I’m no luddite, nor am I even particularly ascetic. The thing that concerns me — especially when I detect it in myself — is the false belief that these things will really revolutionize our lives.

I couldn’t agree more.
