Not insulting you, Grassroots, just your stereotypical notion of progress. True, Serling was making a point which was prescient about the effects of automation. Similar points about the impersonal effects of technology were made far better by Charlie Chaplin in his classic "Modern Times". But both presented sterotypes. For every automated process a Blackberry is born. For every old technology a Microsoft leads the way. To suggest that somehow the business park at the head of this thread is like "Whipple's Brain Center" is, well, it's like living in an unreal world as concocted in the Twilight Zone. That's what I meant.
