The summer is over…

So that’s it, we’ve hit Autumn. Summer has gone – that was it just there, did you miss it? So we can look forward to 8 or more months of wind, rain, snow and sleet. Lucky us.

But we’ll be fine, locked up in our big warm house with our lovely baby. It got me thinking today about the world he will grow up in. He’ll never know a year that start ’19’. Probably never watch a film on video tape or buy an album on cassette. Never be amazed at seeing one of the first 3D computer animations.

He’ll consider mobile phones to be an essential item, single glazing to be part of a bygone era, and computers will be an everyday item to him. He won’t have the fantastic eye-opening technological discoveries that I’ve had. However, he’ll have so much more.

What will he see that I won’t? The first manned mission to Mars? Portable 3D displays? Decent digital paper? True artificial intelligence?

For all the problems the world has, and it has a lot, it’s still an exciting time for a geek and his son.
