Welcome to the new year; what’s next?

It’s easy to watch this video with a fair amount of trepidation–technological singularity and paradigm shifts, anyone? No? Am I the only one who lies awake at night after reading about this on Wikipedia?

It also reminds me of my own mortality. I’ve come to realize that, no matter how many blogs I follow or gizmo reviews I read, eventually I will become the future incarnation of the old lady who still thinks Laserdisc is the future and needs to call her grandson every time she wants to use the internet box.

This is the holographic projection I’ll have to buy when my kids get me one of those new Worldwide Subconscious Mind Meld Information Generators for CompletelySecularCelebrationofTwinklyLightsandGingerbreadMas. And as I watch it, my hands will curl into gnarled, veiny fists and I’ll shout, hoarsely, “But how do I play Tetris?”
