A long time ago in a land not too far away.

Some time, when the moon is just right I think about technology today. I think about how just 50ish years ago we did not have a direct pone connection from New York to San Francisco. Here we are bouncing phone calls, TV and data off satellites! We have surged forward so fast that many just don’t realize how far. We have people alive that can remember using oil lamps for light and horses to get around. Here we are using the atom to power our house and electrons to talk to people on the other side of the planet.

Never before in the history of the world have we been able to look so far back in history and have images, film and personal experiences. When you sit watching your blue ray HD movie remember that less than a century ago a HD experience was going to the theater and watching a play or listening to a concert.
