Another fight club message

20 Apr

Along the way today I used a picture I had been holding on to. I thought it was interesting that you can now read Ted Nelson’s seminal Dream Machines and Computer Lib on an iPhone. Carl Sagan said: “We are the local embodiment of a Cosmos grown to self-awareness.” On a smaller, humbler, human scale, the iPhone is an imperfect representation of the visions documented in Nelson’s books. That it can present the work that led to itself is amazing evidence of how much we’ve gotten done in our generation. It’s all there and it fits in the palm of your hand! 🙂
