The Future Is Tomorrow… Literally

Posted: June 12, 2009 in Technology and Business
Six decades of analog TV goes away today.
 
I’ve been alive for 50 of those years.
 
While I love progress, I will say this:
 
I miss the volume dial.
 
I miss the simplicity of less than 500 channels.
 
I miss great, innocent old shows like Gilligan’s Island, Speed Racer, Mr. Ed (The Talking Horse), The Munsters, Hogan’s Heroes… and of course, I Dream Of Jeannie.
 
And — until technology can fix this — I already miss being able to jump from channel-to-channel quickly.
 
No doubt, the future is going to feel a lot  s-l-o-w-e-r.
 
Go figure that.
