As I type, there's a robot vacuuming my living room floor. Last week, a computer took my picture and sent me a speeding ticket. Wikipedia, great font of all easy-access knowledge, is on my freakin' cell phone. And of course, I can communicate with people all over the world effortlessly, with tools like bigthink. I don't see any flying cars, but might we already be living in the future? And is technology -- and the way humanity uses it -- headed in the right direction?
