Antinomies of Futurology

'Thanks to modern communications - email, MMS messaging and, in particular, Tweets - we were able to find out what the ordinary Iranian people were feeling without filters, restrictions or censorship. Truly amazing.' So says Richard Bacon, writing in Tuesday's Sun, in a 'personal view on how technology shaped the Noughties'.

Maybe. The pace of technological change is truly impressive these days. So how come the BBC still finds it impossible to pay my appearance fee for being a guest on his show in 2009?!!?

Payment by cheque arrived this morning, dated 29/12/09. That's a bit of the licence fee covered then! Thanks Andy, Zarin. GB
