This has had another effect on me - it's become very hard for me to get
excited about things that are new just because they are new - I already
start to see them as simply an aspect of this time we're in right now, and
think ahead to when we (or others) will look back on them. It's also made
me appreciate good design that much more, and to look for those aspects
which are eternally good throughout time rather than what is impressive
now in the moment. It's almost like a lifetime of following technology
has readily exposed the underlying zen of reality.
