Progress and Unreasonableness

by chromatic

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. All progress, therefore, depends upon the unreasonable man.

— George Bernard Shaw

However, not all unreasonableness leads to progress.

That's food for techie thought for dealing with other people in person and onlne.

If I'd written this post today, I know what would've inspired it. Was there some particular impetus for you?
