Professional Comm 1/28: Edwin R. Murrow on Technology's limits

"The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it." - Edward R. Murrow

I think what he is getting at here is the idea that, even with unlimited resources, we must consider our internal resources first and foremost. Is this something that you agree with? Even if you could have a machine decide what to say for you, would you want that? If not, then you must take care that you constantly consider your inner wealth the most important asset you have.
