The idolatry of technology

Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.

They have mouths, but they speak not: they have eyes, but they see not:

They have ears, but they hear not: they have noses , but they smell not:

They have hands, but they feel not: they have feet, but they walk not: nor do they speak through their throat.

They that make them shall become like them; all of those that put their promise in them.

Tehillim 115:4-8

I like quipping about how similar my job as a programmer is to Terach's.

After all, he too took a bunch of silicon, formed it into special "magical" shapes, muttered incantations to it, and thought it would make him rich.
