The invention of the computer and the technology that make possible its most powerful tool, the internet, will be this age's claim to destiny. These twin juggernauts are changing the face of information exchange, allowing all human endeavors...art, science, medicine, capitalism to grow exponentially. It is entirely likely we are not only able to crack open our own brains and share the wealth, but that we are creating a poweful meta-intelligence thru our million bits of posted information. The computer is the most important development for mankind since the wheel, and we watched it hatch!
