innovative clock face*

i sometimes wonder**.

what is wrong with the old clock face, with those little arms pointing at digits, a simple design we grew up with?

what is it one gains, by abolishing the old and simple things, and craving the ‘innovative’?

the curious thing is, that the ‘innovative’ does not mean ‘easier to understand’ or ‘simpler to use’. it only means that all the ‘progressive people’ should get one. to show the other ‘progressive people’ that they are ‘progressive’. just like anyone else.

a strange race, faster and faster, into emptiness.


* an actual quote from here

**can be taken allegorically, too. sadly so.
