The future is coming on

This artilce was very entertainng but is kind of a prediction too. Im sure in years to come people may "unearth" ancient pieces of technology we hold dear today. I liked how the professor talked about the writers of the email using full spelling of words and now smileys or emoticons. Actually, rarely in any itext do i get a full correct spelling of any word.
I look back now and sometimes ask myself what life was like in the early 90's. I dont remember even seeing a computer until about 2nd grade, and it was a giant piece of crappy machinary. I do not think that the computers of today have much in common with the technology of the late 80s early 90s. I'm sure someone will look back in 20 years and say alot of the same things mocked in this article.

Personally, I hope they mock us for much more than they did in this article. ;-)

They probably will, Paul. Like for thinking that a gigabyte or terabyte is a lot of space.
