All of this stuff that trendy futurists in the 90’s were saying was going to happen in 5-10 years, seems to be now about half-way to actually happening.

Just like the electric dynamo [pdf], the Internet is taking longer to change our lives than we thought, but is changing them deeply.

* There are 250,000,000 televisions in the U.S. That’s almost one television per person. What a ludicrous use of our wealth. For the price of a TV you could fly to Guatemala City, take a bus to Antigua, hike up the Pacaya volcano, and roast some marshmallows on lava. Weekend jet-set.
