Downtime slips up making a monkey of a chimpanzee

Downtime thought the chimpanzee apocalypse might well be upon us when we reported last week that monkeys were being trained to replace data analysts.

However, reader John Long wrote in to point out the obvious error, ‘I am sure that you will have heard this from lots of people by now, but a chimpanzee is not a monkey, it is an ape.’

Monkeys, apes, gorillas ­ the threat of simians taking over the earth remains the same. But as long as humankind continues to print documents so as to destroy their homes in the rainforests, we might still have a fighting chance.
