Technology Flunkie

By "flunkie," I don't mean genius-in-training. I mean a form of the word "to flunk!"

I read some quotes in "Reader's Digest" that celebrate my technological inadequacies:
* "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." -Arthur C. Clarke
* "We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology." -Carl Sagan
* A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kickboxing." -Emo Philips

And a great quote on wisdom:
"Just because your voice reaches halfway around the world doesn't mean you are wiser than when it reached only to the end of the bar." -Edward R. Murrow
