"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Arthur C. Clarke made the remark above in his book Profiles of the Future.
The same opinion is held by Satyam Cherukuri. He's the Chief Executive Officer of Sarnoff Corporation and quoted in the Hindu Business Line as saying "It may look like black magic but there is a lot of discipline and thought behind innovation." It's a pretty good article -- take a look.
Props to my creativity-minded new friend, Naina, for linking to the story in her ASIDE Innovation Blog -- also a pretty good read. I encourage you to make a visit.
