1993: On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog

2018: The Internet is run by five mega corporations and not only do they ALL know you're a dog, they also know your preferred brand of kibble, your recent interest in flea powder and whether you've been spayed or neutered.

Give someone a fish and you feed them for a day, teach them to fish and you feed them for a lifetime, but sell them a license for fishing software and they will forever depend on you for their fish because they never learned to make their own fishing software and the software and hardware architecture of contemporary computers is so complex that to learn to automate something in them is an incredibly lengthy process.

2017 me, emerging from DeLorean, to 1995 me:

So, this new 'Pentium' chip, turns out the whole 'speculative execution' road is a bit of a mistake. Yes it makes Doom faster but 22 years later all our computer systems are hacked each week by gangs of roaming cyber-criminals wearing vintage 80s micros as cosmetic jewellery on their leather jackets

1995 me (stuck in E1M2): Got it, Doom will get faster

2017 me: Did you even hear a word I said? I said the 80s are going to be fashionable again.

"These holidays I want to remind everyone about drunk driving. I left my car in the parking lot, spent time the way I wanted and came home by bus. And you know what, I'm really proud, especially considering that I've never driven a bus before."
