La tecnologia dà il meglio di sé quando rimpiazza se stessa

Technology is of greatest benefit when it displaces the deleterious, unnatural, alienating, and, most of all, inherently fragile preceding technology. […] The great use of the tablet computer is that it allows us to return to Babylonian and Phoenician roots of writing and take notes on a tablet. One can now jot down handwritten, or rather fingerwritten, notes — instead of having to go through the agency of a keyboard. […] So it may be a natural property of technology to only want to be displaced by itself. Antifragile, Nassim Nicholas Taleb
