As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

Tacitus wrote:Yes, this Civil Engineer remembers [slide rules] well and, has a certain regret that school pupils were ever introduced to the pocket calculator. To use a slide rule well, you needed to acquire a grasp of number patterns which, in addition, helped when trying to understand mathematical concepts. The slide rule was an aid, the calculator is a crutch which breeds dependency.


People younger than you and me may scoff, if only because they cannot imagine a time without such gadgets as calculators and cell phones, et al, but I believe there is a loss to our spirit when we come too much to depend upon technology to accomplish those tasks we once performed within our selves.

Analogous to the calculator-inspired decline in appreciation of mathematical concepts, I suspect an e-mail-inspired decline in graceful writing and a cell-phone-inspired decline in polite conversation.

Carpers and grousers desist! I agree: I have maundered on at length -- an illustrative redundancy -- when a few simple words might have sufficed. Someone fluent in both old-speak and new-speak will translate the foregoing into a text message for you. (And yes, I did mean "our selves" and not "ourselves.")
