    Just a crazy thought that popped into my head

    Elitism has been at the heart of computing ever since it's inception.

    On two occasions I have been asked [by members of Parliament!], "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

    New, faster, better. its the american way.
    and i dont think its killed ANY technologies,
    Look at cars :
    100 years later and newer faster better is still the motivating
    force in car sales and development.
