“I like driving in my car,
It’s not quite a Jaguar.”

So they sang. But I bet they could drive one if they’d had one. It’s similar to the fact that newspapers are made of paper, and we all know how paper is made. Not sure I could make it but I know the theory. Same as driving a car. Couldn’t build one, but know how it works.

Alas one of the key influences in the ‘simplification’ of sites like Blogger is that there are more and more people who have a blog but don’t have the faintest idea how it worked. Now I know that’s kind of the point, or at least it’s the reason Blogger is so successful but what is really beginning to bug me is that people won’t take the time to learn the basics before ripping out the gearbox, and trying to replace the driveshaft.
