What a wonderful technological world....
For a while I've been bemused at best at technology, antagonistic at worst. Working with computers tends to make you think of them as problems rather than spangly bundles of futureness.
But then I read articles like this on Boing Boing and am reminded exactly why I think I'm living in my own future.... NASA, civilian airborne drones, google maps imaging fire hotspots to direct firefighters to the worst areas. A bizarre future but definitely a fututre.
And then a few links in and Im looking at huge supertankers; DC-10s and a 747 outfitted for firefighting duty and I realise it's not my future I appear to be living in - it's Gerry Andersons.
