I know humor or sarcasm when I read it. And you've been around a while, too.

What's interesting (and yes, off topic) is that there are those who are charitably trying to push technology into the poorest areas. A kiosk with touch screens plopped into African impoverished towns find kids who visit, and with no instructions, manage to navigate and learn. The OLPC (One laptop per child) effort is an attempt to bring computing to the masses. It may not happen in my lifetime, but it would be amazing if education could raise the lower 1/3 of the world out of poverty.
