    this is so true.
    being with my kids (1-year-old and 4-year-old) is like going back in time. they know how to use everything that is digital//electronic BUT, at the same time, they are sooo “vintage”. at school they learn the same songs, the same plays, the same old things that i´ve learnt ages ago. i just wonder… if my kid is being educated almost in the same way that i was, if she plays exactly like i did… how can i believe that we are living in a revolution?

      Hi Warren,

      Well I suppose it’s sad or inspiring, depending on whether one takes a ‘glass half full’ or ‘glass half empty’ view on human nature!

      If indeed Gibson did utter those words (it seems impossible to verify conclusively that he did) I would have thought that he was arguing that it was technological and cultural change that was unevenly distributed. Which is obviously something quite different from suggesting that the nature of human biology, genetics and psychology have changed…
