Wired Weird World

A written record of the contents of my brain. Hide the children.


The Bloggers Are Coming, Tra-la, Tra-la!

The Belmont Club nails it:

Before the Gutenberg printing press men knew the contents of the Bible solely through the prism of the professional clergy, who could alone afford the expensively hand copied books and who exclusively interpreted it. But when technology made books widely available, men could read the sacred texts for themselves and form their own opinions. And the world was never the same again.

Does anybody remember when the Japanese took over the watchmaking industry from the Swiss?

Does anybody still use a typewriter?

Does anybody light their homes without electricity (excepting for religious reasons)?

The world is changing under the clay feet of the Mainstream Media. The chasm opening beneath them will swallow them like Edward G. Robinson in The Ten Commandments, unless they repent and take off the blinders.
