So the other day I read a post that I’m of that generation that lived before we had the internet. Can’t say I wasn’t connected – had a 2400bps modem and a bitnet account. They were the precursors to the Internet.
But other things that changed in my lifetime are as follows:
- Cell phones that morphed into little computer tablets.
- Related – computers that didn’t just have black screens with white/green/amber text.
- Online video
- Medicine stepping out of the dark ages.
- Related – CRISPR-Cas9 – that is going to be one of the holy grails of medicine.
- High speed rail.
- Squeezing 300HP out of a 4 cylinder engine.
That’s just a small snipet.
