2020


Recommended Posts

It seems so strange to be thinking about the year 2020.

Time surely does fly by, it seems just a few years ago people were stressing about Y2K

I remember thinking we'd have flying cars or teleportation by now, what were some of your wishful visions of the future when younger?

(Other than a few more banners of course)

I had visions of taking over for Hugh Heffner when he passed.  

True story.  Heff was in Colorado visting a friend of mine , just weeks before Heff's passing.  And then, just days before Heff's passing, my friend and Heff met up at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas.

I had the privilege and honor of actually knowing my great-grandmother.  "Great Ma" as I called her was born in 1892.  As a kid I was fascinated about what she had witnessed in her lifetime.  An automobile was a novelty when she was young, she traveled by horse and buggy.  Radios were something rich people had as were "record players".  People had ice boxes.  Just listening to her talk was mind boggling about how things were then as to how they were now(1978).  I wonder what "Great Ma" would say if she was alive today?

Cubs World Series Champs. Since I crossed that one off. The show Black Mirror shows some artificial intelligence that blows the mind. Another wishful vision...cures for cancer.

As a kid, I used to like to watch  the Dick Tracy cartoon show on tv.  And when Dick Tracy, spoke into his watch phone.... I thought that was pretty cool. But something that would never happen.

Now... I am blown away, with all the things that my son's Iwatch can do.

We've been able to make flying cars for years, but I'm sure there are all kinds of logistical hurdles to jump through before flying cars start "hitting the road."

It really is remarkable some of the things that are around today.  I really feel like anything can be built these days, they just aren't commercially available due to the costs.  Look at some of the things at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.  Its getting pretty crazy what is actually out there.

I have a grandma who is 88 and my wifes grandpa is I think 92.  They both grew up on farms.  They didnt have electricity or indoor plumbing and they experienced the great depression. I wonder what it must feel like to grow up like that and see all the things that exist today. 

My uncle and I built my first desktop computer in 1996. Giant monitor and giant tower and all the accessories.  Now I carry one in my pocket. Pretty wild.
