The Pervasiveness of Tech

Even though this elegant NY Times image links to a really interesting article about cosmology and the seeming absurdity "...that you yourself reading this article are more likely to be some momentary fluctuation in a field of matter and energy out in space than a person with a real past born through billions of years of evolution in an orderly star-spangled cosmos. Your memories and the world you think you see around you are illusions." , the real reason for this post is to show just how pervasive tech has become.

Every day, untold millions of us bloggers create interactive content in ways undreamed of just five years ago, a fact that continues to amaze me while writing words destined to go up onto the Internet within seconds once this article is done. In every way, how we view and interact with reality (in conjunction with the five senses of course) depends, in part, on the ever advancing tech we continue to build as we move further into the 21st century.

I must confess, I was born at a very early age. — Groucho Marx
