Contrast without comfort

I just finished reading the book Rainbows End, by Vernor Vinge.

The quote that stuck with me, from page 355 is, "Back when I was young, you could have got a patent off of it... Nowadays, it should be worth a decent grade in a high-school class."

Yes, technology changes, and skills that would have been impressive twenty years ago are of little worth today.
