No, not that Amara. No, not that one either. :-)
Smart Remarks from SMART People: Richard Dalton
"The paraphrase you attribute to Paul Saffo in SMART Letter
#56 [that we tend to overestimate the short-term impact of
technological change and underestimate its long-term impact
-- David I] is actually "Amara's Law," named after the
long-term IFTF president who originally proposed this
elegantly simple view of emerging technology. There is some
disagreement among IFTers about the exact wording, but your
version captures its essence."
