Thoughts on My Science-Fiction-Fan Past and My Science-Fictional Present

Posted: February 1, 2013 in Uncategorized

I have on a roughly 12″ by 9″ by 9″ area on my desk probably more computing power than existed in the whole world when I was a child (need to look that up, but I remember when a gigabyte was something possible in theory; the computer on the Lunar Lander had, I think 16 or 15 bits).  And what do I do with this power that had been unthinkable when I was a science-fiction-devouring kid?  Am I planning colonies on Titan? Am I figuring out ways to mine nickel and iron from the Asteroid Belt? No. I’m watching cat videos. Welcome to the Future!!!  Snow Cat
