Change and risk, or the risk to change ...

Interesting statement from John Cleese, member of the Monty Python crew, http://www.montypython.com/, who did appear as Q in some James Bond movies as the super guru engineer. Especially his statement about the instruction booklets fits well to one of the scenes in "Die Another Day", when Bond destroyed the manual of his new car with the installed guns http://www.jamesbondmm.co.uk/bond-allies/john-cleese. So a good example for risk and change - if you hate technology, play an engineer and learn about the environment or like in John's case make fun of it.
