So long, Messers Suzuki, and thanks for all the cushions

Don't you hate the way the younger generation thinks they invented something they didn't?
There was talk at the conference of the ways in which the digital revolution has helped spread the teachings of the Buddha, once accessible to Americans only through pilgrimages to Asia.
-- from an L.A. Times story on a
recent "Buddhist geeks" conference which
"brought together bloggers, tweeters, scholars,
teachers and just plain Buddhist practitioners."
So much for the 100+ year history of Zen in America.
