I'm somewhere between late '90s and now. I love the internet, but I also love the technology that we have today. Sometimes I like to think to myself, 'What would it be like if we could go back in time and show the people who ushered in the technological era the kind of technology that we have now?' I would kill to see the reaction on their faces! :blink:

I also would like to see the looks of those people when they see just what the old timers had to work with then. Then watch how the modern day people try to do the same as they could, with just what they had. Particularly in the 50s and 60s.

It was actually covered in Star Trek 1V:The Voyage Home (1986) Movie and featured "Scotty" or "Spock" on a non voice activated Computer. A very interesting Movie, in it's day. Just remember that voice activation was just a dream, back then.

Today is yesterday when it was tomorrow.


or if you prefer


Today is tomorrow when it was yesterday.

History is important in some ways. But I don't like history. I'm a 60's but the late 70's and early 80's are when I came into my own. Today, I want to see what tomorrow has in store and sometimes can't sleep waiting for it to get here.

I'm with you, cast, always an optimist and looking forward to what tomorrow brings.
I've been around for a long time and I always hope tomorrow will be better than yesterday was.

History is important in reminding us to not make the same mistakes, yet somehow there are those who ignore history and insist on repeating the mistakes of the past.

The now technology is growing everyday I can't imagine living without it.

The only problem with technology now is: THEY ARE USING IT MORE AND MORE TO SPY ON PEOPLE,TAKE PRIVACY AWAY!!!

In my opinion the best thing you can do is NOT HAVE ANY OF THIS CRAP!! (Try to hold onto whatever privacy you still have)
