Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

See now, this is what I call a proper fanatic. They don't make them like that nowadays (he's probably 50, in mind if not in body). Decades of evolution and R&D be damned, gimme back my 80's. iPod? iPhone? Mac? What are those? I want my Macintosh!

Some people look to the future and wonder what technological advances they'll get to experience within their lifetimes. Some cling to the past and remain frozen in it.

Actually, I take that back. He's not 50, he's 30. He got to experience the Macintosh when he was young and impressionable and it put an indellible mark on him. Dude, we all had computers we loved when we were kids. They're gone. Get over it.
