Ray Bradbury has some thoughts.

Ray Bradbury reaches 90 years on the 22nd of this month,  He still has a lot to say about the world around him. He speaks out against Large government and not being accountable to the citizens. I find it interesting that he lashes out against technology.

…  despite his passion for more national space projects, he is not  technology obsessive by any means.

“We have too many cellphones. We’ve got too many Internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.”

Bradbury wrote darkly about bookburning in “Fahrenheit 451,” but he sounds ready to use a Kindlefor kindling. “I was approached three times during the last year by Internet companies wanting to put my books” on an electronic reading device, he said. “I said to Yahoo, ‘Prick up your ears and go to hell.’ “

I guess at age 90 he isn’t real worried about the loss of sales by ignoring Kindle.   Oddly, I find myself pretty much agreeing with him..
