Donald Pittenger at 2 Blowhards makes a good case that the pace of technological change is slower today than it was several decades ago, and that the “century of maximum change” is actually the period 1825-1925.

What went wrong? And what can be done about it?
And why do so few people seem to think that it’s even a problem?
