Abstract: A simple four-stage model of the evolution of an AGN is proposed. Some similarities between the variability of AGNs and X-ray binaries, and between the jets of AGNs and of X-ray binaries are suggested. Some limitations on variability studies as probes of the central engine are pointed out, and the future of AGN monitoring is discussed.
