Re: The river of progress

But what if Google and the like aren't a boulder but a crevasse? You can't flow around a sheer crack in your path, and since water always flows DOWN, there's no natural way to the other side anymore.

Another possibility is a dam: a huge one capable of stopping even the river of progress such that even if it builds enough to go over the top, everything behind it would've been flooded to ruin in the interim.
