An interesting question, posed on a radio show.
Charming childlike logic:
I can't remember a world before television myself. However, I do know that evenings in the jungle are filled with story telling. People are looking at each other.
Ambulant phonecallsThe same kind of questions is conceivable in different forms, for example:
The anser to this question is easy.
We had phoneboots everywhere, little green glass houses that accepted quarters.
Even the village where I grew up had two of them.
Now I fail to locate one in the entire city.
I still know about phoneboots, because I'm from a pre-mobile era. Those who grow up in a phonebootless world can not imagine how to people used to call en route. The past get lost.
Unimaginable futureParts of the current slip my attention.
I fail to imagine what the future will bring me. To me the world is complete, needs no additions. I don't know what I am missing.
This lack of missing happens now, but is not new. Years ago the Commodore VIC20 was the ultimate computer, with a keyboard, cassette player, joystick and a television for monitor.
I failed to imagine what could be missing. Things such as floppy disks, harddrives, CDs, laptops, palmtops, mouse, GUI, HTML, OO, Java, email and the whole world wide web were yet unknown to me. And so, I did not miss them.
The future was, is and will be unimaginable.
