Scott Adams: On the Limits of Technology

Scott Adams became famous for creating the Dilbert cartoon, about a socially inept electrical engineer dealing with the banality of corporate America. Adams conceived of Dilbert while working at Pacific Bell and based it on his own distaste for corporate culture as he plugged away in a cubicle each day. Throughout his career, and in his cartoons, Adams was intrigued by the role technology played in changing the business world. Commenting on the initial impact of technology in the early '90s, Adams said in 1994, "The biggest impact of technology has been to allow us to do more unproductive things at a far more impressive rate."
