Look at your computer right now, is it gray? If not, was it once gray and now that color of spoiled milk? If so, your computer is not post-gray.
Is your computer Dell
-black? Is it Apple
-white or clear or red or blue or purple? If so, then you and your computer are proud participants in the post-gray movement.
Post-gray is not so much a cultural revolution or the color of computers, but the hardware evolution of the lonely unnetworkable PC
s made in the mid-to-late 90s that never work and sit in your closet. Post-gray is the buzzword (in other words I didn't make it up) that embodies the progressive desires of the PC Aristocracy to sell you and your business gigahertz
ed computers that hook up easier than college dormies.
The post-gray reality is here. The kind clergy of the computer world have given us laser mice, flat monitors, and DSL
. Good riddance to the roller mice, thirty pound 15" theatres, and serial cables of the distant 20th century. Our computers are post-gray and so are we. We are so post-gray that if Dell put out a gray computer it would be fashionable again... but it would still be post-gray.
My cubicle features an Old Regime 500Mhz PC encapsulated in yellow and a streamlined 2.4Ghz Dell, dude
, with flat monitor and laser mouse: Pride of the post-gray regime. Only one is connected to the internet right now. One is a steam engine, the other is cold fusion. One weighs more than a boulder, the other can sit on my shoulder. Sir, welcome to the post-gray world.
Actually, forget it. It's just style
