Today's Quote, Think About It! As We Approach Today's Technology!
" The mind likes a strange idea as little as the body likes a strange protein and resist it with similar energy.
It would not perhaps be to fanciful to say that a new idea is the most quickly acting antigen known to science. If we watch ourselves honestly we shall often find that we have begun to argue against a new idea even before it has been completely stated!"
- Mark Twain
I guess the relation between Mark Twain's above observation remind me of the missed, opportunities, oversights and purposeful avoidance of todays technology by so many folks in our community. As a concerned internet technology researcher who seeks to inform and interpret my research finding back to the community in as practical and clear way as possible. I find the last sentence in his quote, to be absolutely true.
