Have computers really simplified things?
It used to be things were simple & uncomplicated. People lived near where they worked & bought locally provided goods. They communicated doorstep to doorstep not online. There was lot of paper, but computers were unnecessary.
What will happen if the computer system is knocked out somehow (Solar Storm etc.)?
Will people know simple survival techniques or is this now lost in a world of complexity?
You don't have to be a genuine Intellectual snob to join. Pseudo-intellectuals are also welcome. All you need is an aloof attitude full of irony and some baffling intellectual ideas or--dare I say it--some unanswered question you wish to convey incognito.
In honor of this being our 20th Nerd Fun Psuedo-intellectual event, I'll repost a link posted to our very first one (May[masked])!
The premise = to share your intellectual baffling snob idea or question on an index card & pool the cards in a basket (provided) from which other snobs read aloud, if appropriate.
