I am currently reading this post at The Speculist, which asks the question: has technological evolution quickened, as customarily believed, or actually slowed? LOTS of food-for-though to be had here. I pose a couple of interesting questions: What of the difficulty in producing truly seminal thought, as a direct result of the easy access to earlier thought? And what of the profundity of current thought, over earlier thought?

Hat Tip: InstaPundit.
