Jar Jar Binks

Yesterday was May 4. Or, as Star Wars fans put it, “May the 4th be with you.”

For some reason that brought back to my┬ámind the “least liked”┬ácharacter in the whole Star Wars series, Jar Jar Binks. JJ Abrams has been quoted as saying he will kill off the Gungan character in the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens just as a gift to true Star Wars fans.

We all make mistakes. Even George Lucas.

The key: do we learn and grow? Or do we repeat the same mistakes over and over?

Bill Gates had Microsoft “Bob”, the friendly assistant character to help computer users. Bob would have been 20 years old this March, had he survived.

Perhaps he did. Today we’d call him “Cortana“. Or for the Apple fans, “Siri“. Perhaps Bob grew up after all?

Maybe JJ Abrams will “learn and grow” from the Jar Jar Binks experiment of George Lucas and let him develop a smarter future relative? Or not.

Happy Cinco de Mayo.
