A classical reference survives

A few years ago I talked about using a reference to Greek mythology at work that elicited only blank stares. (Use Your Allusion). Thinks have  changed a little over the last three years. I recently submitted a review that used the Gordian Knot as an example -- and it was accepted.

And to be clear, since the review was about something technical written for the general public, virtually anything considered to be obscure usually gets changed. So at least one person (the editor) thought the reference sufficiently in the realm of common knowledge to stand.

I know longer feel like Prometheus bound....
