We are moving wonderfully fast

I’m not posting this video to make fun of Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel on The Today Show. I’m thrilled to be reminded how fast we are moving technologically. The internet is the greatest invention in my life and probably one of the greatest things man will ever invent. Humans can instantly share everything with everyone. I am guessing in my lifetime an entire wall in my home could be a super realistic high definition 3D display showing any other room in the world who would like me to see them. It will be almost a transporter. Maybe musicians can play live to stadiums from there living rooms or garages? I was online almost a decade before this video above. I would log on at 300 baud to local BBS’s. I remember I used a service in Rockland County called Mnematics Videotext and the original CompuServe.

    It’s okay to make fun of Bryant Gumbel and Katie Couric. They deserve some fun of being made.

    This. I was thinking about something of a similar concept in my architectural studies :D

    Just a kick in the pants for us who are labelled as creative. Think of all the amazing music and other creative things that produced BEFORE the benefits we now enjoy.

    I think I’d better step up my game a bit.
