Luddite's code

So you've noticed the new look of the blog! I had nothing to do with it other than knowing a very nice and talented guy named Daniel who owed me one. That was allowed in the Luddite's code.

Twenty-first Century Luddite's code:

I will not learn how to do new stuff even though it will help me because -
it's too hard, I forgot, I don't have the time, I don't know what a meme is... blah nlah ylah dah.

I will roll my eyes and pretend not to listen when people effuse about their new technology. 3 years later I will want a nano very badly.

I will use the technology I have poorly, thus causing my friends and colleagues to roll their eyes, mutter, or gasp in disbelief at my incompetence.

I will then rope these people into helping me fake that I have embraced the new technology by getting them to program my cell phone, de-bug my computer, re-vamp my blog, build my spreadsheets, trick out my power point.

Finally I will appear technologically up-to-date while I am really still writing everything on index cards and ultimately losing them.
