The Future Is Now
Lately I’ve been perusing the archives on the Popular Science website. It’s always cool to read about robots and crazy scientific theories, but the thing that I like best is reading about some long-running experiment that was about to take place, then going over to Wikipedia to see how it turned out, since the article was written five years ago. It’s a great way to get your news, if you’ve got the patience. It’s kind of like seeing GM’s “Futurama” exhibit at the 1939 World’s Fair, which was all about how wonderful (and, presumably, drug-free) life in the 1960s was going to be.
