This blog does exactly what it says on the box; takes a look at advances in technology from the beginning of the 21st century in an old style, everyday tech blog sort of way. You may have to do a little bit of research into old technology and jargon.
The early 21st century was the beginning of technology’s serious integration into every aspect of human life, which “led to the desire to interact with technology as they did with other humans, inescapably creating the perfect conditions for the advent of the Singularity.” (Inessa Bannerji, A Short But Dense History of Pre-Singularity Earth)
I hope you enjoy these little gems (or should I say pebbles?) from the past that I dig up for you.
