[talking about a scholar who wouldn't accept the new technologies] To my mind it was because she could not separate the activities of research from the particular form they had historically assumed. Her love of books (which I share) momentarily blinded her to the true object of reverence: the creating of a superb reference work. Her reaction is a sign that the new technologies are extending our powers faster than we can assimilate the change.
