Quoted from jpop:
If you were building the world's best pinball factory what would it look like? How would things be put together, would there be a new type of assembly line, and would it wired so people could watch or help out virtually? Or will be it always relegated to the paradigm it is with people standing up, in a block building, boxes of parts on palletes and a general manufaturing ecosystem that was invented by Eli Whitney or Henry Ford as progressive assembly?
I’m going with Eli Whitney or Henry Ford. You can criticize them for advancing slavery in America or being extremely anti-Semitic and an early supporter of Hitler, but at least they weren’t you.
