Lots of people talking about things related to tech being "too hard" for people and that somehow people shouldn't have to learn the tools of the modern times.

Carl Sagan had some thoughts about that:



This is not to say we can't make the tools better. We can and we should.

But we should not promote learned helplessness, either.

Let us make tools that people feel comfortable using as tools -- in other words, things that can help them make and shape the world around them.
