Ad Fontes and Tech Support

I often think about the connection between advancement in technology and Reformation in the Church. These things have always gone hand-in-hand.

The invention of an alphabet brought about the ability for prophets to record the Word. The move away from leather to paper made the ability for the Word to be preserved at a more cost effective rate, thus making it more available for the common man. The invention of the postal service along with good roads made the early Church able to receive epistles in a timely manner. The printing press played a huge role in the Protestant Reformation as well as the Puritan movement. We will see, in God's timing what the Internet and the 'flattening' of the world will bring.

But one question remains unanswered.

Did every one of these technologies, that brought about the Reformation of the Church... have a tech-support problem?

Could we get some tech support over here to get this back and running?
