"On Becoming a Dinosaur" is an intriguing and short memoir from author Java Davis that details how technological innovation has spoiled many of our artful pursuits, taking the "specialness" out of "specialty". I thrive on the other side of the coin: Technology has been a boon for me and I often tell people I was not smart until Google came along. However, there are many stories to tell regarding the innovations from the last 20 years, and this one is worth reading.
In "Dinosaur", Java tells of becoming a typesetter through ambitious and nervy means, falling love with the craft. In 7 pages, this author speaks volumes about how our dreams may necessarily have to change with the times in which we live, whether we want to or not. I recommend this short story as food for thought and reflection.
