I, Smartphone

We live in such an amazing time.  Imagine having to create all the wonderful conveniences that we use everyday.  In 1958, Leonard Read wrote about this mental exercise using a simple pencil to illustrate his point.  His story was named “I, Pencil”.

We now have an updated version to watch in this video.  How incredible is the time we live.  Never forget how blessed we are and that millions of actions are performed for our benefit without our knowledge everyday and without our permission.  It is a fatal conceit to try to control all aspects of life.
