Welcome ... to the WORLD OF TOMORROW!

We live in an amazing age.
When you needed to communicate with someone across great distances a century ago, you had to write it on paper and physically move it from one place to another. Today, you can zap an entire novel to the other side of the planet in seconds.

Communication — and, consequently, the world's entire wealth of knowledge — is at our fingertips to discover. This is a power undreamed of by humanity for most of its existence. Even The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy can't compete with the Internet.

And what do we do with this new found power? Today I used it to watch a free episode of Star Trek on my phone while walking on a treadmill. I think there's a metaphor for humanity trapped somewhere in that sentence.
