Future shock becomes second nature

Scott McLemee has an interesting discussion here on succumbing to new technology that quickly is new no more, but everywhere, changing, in small immessurable steps how we live.

The salient point…  is that something I probably first read about in Isaac Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine in 1978 is about to become part of the texture of everyday life. It bears recognizing this now, before the familiarity takes over.

I should also get an e-reader.
