The More Things Change

by bxrtley

After all our technological advances, we have ghastly reverted to the parchment scroll era, when the codex has proven to be more efficient. Instead of both hands, we now arrogantly (and infinitely) flick our thumb against gorilla glass, scrolling for information like ancient scholars.  Although technology and our knowledge advances, we can’t help but repeat the past. We’re suckers for the primitive and familiar. But we take up so much resources to do it. Students will soon be outside again, but hover-boarding Indian-style over the synthetic turf with their tablets, listening under a willow Jumbotron.
