It's a black art

Posted by Bob Yeomans on October 25, 2003

The other day, I was at a conference pertaining to a relatively new technology and someone made the comment; "it's a black art". I can't find any reference to the origin of this saying.I am assuming this has something to do with mid evil times,allthough, knowing how accurate my assumptions, are, I thought I would call on some consultants.Can anyone shed some light on this?
