Laura Scott was nice enough to send me this article (where do you people find this stuff!). In our seminar on Wednesday, I was riffing on both sliced bread and on the iPod, and here you go: The Morning News – iPod vs. Sliced Bread. My one cavil is that they forgot to mention that if you’re lost in the woods, sliced bread has the advantage that you can leave it out and it will get moldy. I don’t know if mold is like moss, but it might be, and that way you’d know which way is north. On the other hand, an iPod is better to trade to the local villager, who will then lead you out of the words in gratitude.
