Good observation - and it is correct that way, because thus the balance is created. Purely conservative, not moving at all, is death. Purely innovative, wildly growing in all directions, is cancer. None of them could support life.As many times drhowarddrfine said the same topics starts again and again.
IMO this is the "war of generation". I am not IT educated but I can compare this debate with my work as researcher (genetics). Everything the same. Older you are less you want changes. But time didn't stop and young people with new ideas are coming but we old one never trust them. But it is not our future, it is future of the young generations.
