The Ra̶̷m̶̷b̶̷l̶̷i̶̷n̶̷g Musings of an Aging Millenial

The ENIAC is as legendary as it was useful. when it was invented in the early part of the 20th century it ushered in a new era, the age of "The Computer" had arrived! Fast forward a few decades to the present and you will see that the world is now vastly different than it was in a time where Vacuum Tubes stood where transistors now roam. Almost every device on the market is "Smart" and with the emergence of the Internet of Things, it will only be a matter of time before every single device on this planet is connected.What does this mean for us as Human Beings? Well, the main benefit is access to an endless flow of information.

The internet is literally working itself into the very fabric of our beings. How far will it go, we now have "smart" phones. "smart" glasses, "smart" appliances and even "Smart" watches. I for one love smart devices, maybe is because I'm a techie at heart, maybe I'm just lazy but no matter what anyone might think, this is to be our future. People have always felt the need to share information, in the beginning it was by stories passed down from one generation to the next, soon these stories would be transcribed to a variety of mediums, eventually transcending physical media at the speed of light into the digital realm.Information cannot be contained, the internet has proven this to us over and over again, peopl...
