In 1947 Bell Labs invented the transistor. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

@spacekookie Why? I thought transistors made a lot of cool things work. Why bad?

@spacekookie well, they do have some negative unintended consequences, but have brought some very good things to us as well. I suppose the irony is not lost on you that you've written "computers were a mistake" ON a computer?

@j3t @spacekookie the original quote goes "in the beginning god made the world" so it's kind of tongue-in-cheek
we all like being alive in the world but we all complain about it, same goes for computers
