Just finished Delia Ephron's book of essays (Sister, Mother...) and loved this quote on technology:
"Baby boomers cannot keep learning new things, stuffing new information into their overcrowded brains. We're already passing out from it."
I know I politely turn down any improvements, fearing I'll lose the capacity I already have. I thoroughly embrace, as regards technology only, the dictum, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
