Ode to modern Christmas shopping

"What a wonderful world this is! I click a mouse somewhere, bits
fly through optics, go to some undisclosed place, money
electronically changes hands, and then atoms in useful
arrangement are flown in airplanes and hand-carried to my
doorstep. When you think about it, this is miraculous."

- Robert W. Lucky, in "Reflections", IEEE Spectrum Magazine,
November 2005. The writer had purchased a new laptop computer
online.
