Something I posted on Facebook shortly ago:
"General question: Things that have happened in our lifetimes: new, readily accessible computers, the internet, instant communication: To be remembered as specifically a major turning point in the history of our species, or just one of many inevitable, though not immediate, side notes of the industrial revolution?"
I don't think there's much uncertainty we're living in the dawn of a new age of humanity, one inconceivable even one hundred years ago. But let's think of the question more generally: Will the age be remembered fondly, angrily, or even as surely necessary but apathetically thought of as the Bronze Age?
Essentially, what are the times we are living in, in your opinion, going to mean to the people of even a couple hundred years from now?
