PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

Solid post!

I would add, don't look beyond the religious stuff... Chesterton was pure genius, his protégé, CS Lewis wasn't bad either.

Thanks - that's kind of you to say. Yes, their ways of using paradox to unpick apparent logic or rather customary thinking, were often quite striking.

I sometimes go to church, sometimes don't, and this person has kind of said it better than I could do as to why that is:

Meh, Chesterton's prose had lots of stylistic merits, it's intellectual content however was rather pedestrian. E.g. The piece by him that you linked earlier was a colossal "no true Scotsman" type of arguments, and those are just run of the mill fallacy...
