Technology In Our Lifetime
Reminded of this Summer day back in the mid 90s
Walking down a sidestreet when I noticed the familiar, but foreign reminiscence of a payphone on the side of a building
The outside case that said phone remained, without a phone
After depating what activity to fill our summer day up with Charlie,Tom,Brian, and I decided to walk to the mall.
Tom was ridiculous. Talked about getting a beeper
Think you're so important that can't wait to get home to make a phone call
Go to the arcade and by a new CD at the music store
Heard this song over a year ago on an underground college radio station and have been waiting for the album
Station was the best getting tapes from the city of unkown artist that nobody else had.
Had to find a pay phone to call my parents to let them know I'd be home late for dinner.
Would be great if I could just carry around phone instead of a beeper.

Answer email and do shopping on the ride to and from work
In the more distant future
Would you have a sensore wired to your brain if it could enhance your abilities
I don't foresee the world in BTF or Feed becoming reality anytime soon,but I what we will probably see some less dramatic changes to everyday life in the near-future.
Segue Into Future
Feed M.T. Anderson
A majority of the population has their brain physically plugged into the internet, and companies create a consumer class through thier feed.
Eerie prediction of the future of the internet
Back to the Future
Hogan's Alley outdated
Artificial Environment shades,near term, Hovering cars and boards, more diistant future,and of course the time traveling delaurian...Not physically possible
The media has protrayed the future in many different ways.Some doing a good job, and others instantly dating the movie with ridiculous futuristic technological devices
Think 1950s and 1960s Sci-fi movies
Segue Into Present
2001: High speed internet
Was hooked after being able to tunnel into university computer and work remotely
2010:The smart phone
Can store all of those CDs on my phone and even play games with significantly better graphics
Ever increasing computing power and improvements in energy consumption
We'll have to wait to see how technology changes our daily lives.
What is certain is that some of the technology that all of us work together directly or indirectly to develop will be used in a future products that help defend our country or transform our socitey.
Cheers to all of you who are working on our future now!
