Sad Technology

Just discovered an interesting blog called “SadTech“. While many of the articles are great, these two in particular are simultaneously very sad and very funny:

Visiting the Dentist

Today, when we go to the dentist, we are primitive people. What we have is a person reaching into our mouths with a scraper. When that doesn’t work we get cavities, and we turn to a dentist with a drill. A drill of all things! And when that doesn’t work, the tooth gets pulled out. This does not sound a whole lot more advanced than civil war surgery…


When you think about sad technologies, there are few that are sadder than cigarettes. Cigarettes should probably be the SadTech poster child.
