I'm 73 years old and I've read sci-fi all my life. I trained as a programmer in 1967 and have worked in the software business ever since. I'm beginning to feel a sense of near-panic/exaltation and I can't be the only one of my generation. Is it just me or are we truly on the edge of evolution. One thing is clear, Page and Jobs have opened a Pandora's box and unleashed a force beyond our imagination.

Wonder what Alan Turing would think if he were still with us? With all the advances, however, we still don't have anything like a true Thinking Machine. That leaves room for more science fiction!
