The Lessons of 10 Years of Talking Tech
By DAVID POGUE
November 24, 2010

It’s a special week in America. All over the country, families are gathering in warmly lighted homes. They’re sitting down to fancy feasts at decorated tables. They smile, they pour libations, they raise their glasses.

Yes, that’s right — it’s the 10th anniversary of this column in The Times!

As tech decades go, this one has been a jaw-dropper. Since my first column in 2000, the tech world has not so much blossomed as exploded.

While we would like to think that our generation is at the top of the innovation curve, there were arguably other eras where innovation was coming at a staggering pace.

I submit that watching the moss grow on Microsoft and Apple has lulled us into a false sense of forward progress.

Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. -- JFK
