    I am in the Future

    I just had a strange revelattion as i put my iPad down and read a few pages on my eBook.

    I am actualy in the future!

    I used to read about this shit when i was young. I love scifi and i love books like 'a brief history of Time' , I read Alvin Toffler's Future shock, which was written in the sixties and i read it in the early nineties both as one of my first english books.

    I watched a few youtube clips how startrek and us now are similar in tech.

    But the revelation is a bit amazing......iI am in the future!

    What is your future sense that is now reality from when you were younger?

    I had the same revelation when I was re-reading Hitchhikers Guide and reached over to my iPad to look up something on Wikipedia.

    I'd say that's my strongest future-identication so far; Snow Crash-metaverse being eerily close with Second Life and the upcoming VR-sets as a close second.

    Had that feeling about 10 years ago when looking at my old Sony Ericsson dumb phone, running at 400MHz, thinking about my first job as a mainframe operator in the 80s on a IBM 8083 which filled an entire wing of a building, running at 33MHz.

    My dad was a team leader for a major, name witheld but really big, usa/europa comms company before the internet. I remember me running around in those big computer rooms in the 80s when i was a toddler later varified by pictures.
    That smell of a computer room, ozone with heated plastic, allways brings me back there.

    I am sending you this message from the past.




    Seriously though, it amuses me to no end when, watching Star Trek reruns, everybody reports to the Capitan in person to present their reports on what is essentially a wireless-enabled tablet. You know, because email doesn't exist in the distant space future.

    Let me rain on your parade by saying the kids today don't realize they're in the future. It's just normal to them.
