    Here are some quotes from Carl Sagan.

    What do you think? Are people being left in the dark? Few people actually know how their own computers work:(

    "It just works" Is that a dangerous motto?

    It's too much to ask really. Once upon a time, your world was a philosophical conundrum based on the abstracts of existence. Now it is that and more due to international news, intellectual and scientific development, cultural exchange, literature, advertising etc. Some can repair a BSA Bantam blindfolded, others are a whizz with Photoshop or a soldering iron. It's an overload as it is without an extra burden. Of course some will navigate to it as some to proctology! Who understands the combustion engine? It's over a hundred years old at least .... very few. Each to their own.
