I thought my GPS had been recalled, but found out that my serial number was safe. Hooray, my battery isn't going to explode.
My homework for CS260 has me reading "one of the most far-sighted articles published in our field." Far-sighted doesn't say the half of it:
"Wholly new forms of encyclopedias will appear, ready-made with a mesh of associative trails running through them..." - Bush, Vannevar. "As We May Think." The Atlantic Monthly, July 1945.
Holy crap, that's Wikipedia. Foretold in 1945. My mind has been blown. Remember, that's just one quote from a series of very accurate predictions about machines of the future.
