For some reason, parsing Wikipedia’s article on CRT shadow masks, I am reminded that by the time old age kills me, more than a few pieces of technology will have changed. When I was a kid, I thought it was pretty damned cool that colour television was everywhere and most folks had VCRs.

Technology changes faster than people does. Or at least, I’d kinda like to not die that soon. It’s still my theory that my generation will make either a really interesting, or a really sad bunch at the old folks home, if we live long enough.
