On Jetpacks

When we were young and imagined the future, we thought we’d be traveling to and fro in our personal jetpacks and flying cars. We envisioned astounding advances in transportation. We dreamed that we’d go places.

What we got instead was the Internet. Astounding advances in communication. Things come to us.

Not a bad consolation prize.
