It seems that architects have always had quite a bit of trouble
ambracing communications technology... Television and radio both revolutionized
the way people utilized their living space, but this change in lifestyle was
not reflected in emerging architecture. Now the same thing occurs with
computer technology. A quick look around bitnet will show that architects as
a group are extremely underepresented on the information highway...
It may be true (although rather crass) that it is nice to be able to
escape the morons that we work with, but the implication of that statement is
that the vast majority of architects are morons. This is a rather depressing
thought...
