Progress is overrated.

[put at-character here]Philipp : is this a way to say "there no interesting news about Google today"?

For some reason Philipp's image reminds me of the evolution parody images:

Does this mean that Blogoscoped will now be updated with automatic RSS feeds?

How swift and nice it is-to see the 'imaginative ' progress that is drawn in few lines!

I just came here after seeing a new post, thinking that Phillipp should've left an explanation finally. Disappointed!

Drtimofey and Mak, the cartoon is open to your interpretations.. by adding words to it, I might take away from it. What do *you* see in the cartoon?

ok.... I guess it's up to imagination. Like most people, I see past, present and future. But it can be interpreted into many ways.

What I see is that we are spending more and more energy for the same basic result overall. The lines are pretty much the same across all three pictures. The only change is in the "dressing" of the character. First without anything, then with a car and then with a car piloted by his brain. In essence progress may just as well be stagnation but with superficiality added. A superficiality paid at the cost of more and more energy consumption. Nice drawing Philipp.

I like yours too. It's a nice extension of Philipp's drawing and definitely another perspective on things :-)

I was just messing around... but thanks for the compliment:)

Drtimofey, your drawing really made me smile :)

OK, now I feel bad asking for a compliment in the first place. Thanks though!
