As true today as ever it was. I wonder what the old boy would have made of Twitter; hearty approval or dismissive contempt? Given his enthusiastic encouragement of wartime technological leaps and restless enquiring mind I think the former. I would most enjoy though, his analysis of where he might think technology is taking us, in both a social and geopolitical context. Perhaps one day some Artificial Intelligence chip might be able to tell us how he might have viewed the modern world.
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." T.E. Lawrence; Seven Pillars of Wisdom
