We're Living In The Future!

Kid Various is still pissed about his flying car and personal robot (not to mention the Tomorrowland digs.)

But you have to admit that we're living in the future when the following headline:

Blackberry To Support Google Messaging

Appears in the AP "Top Stories" category instead of the "Technology" section.

Would that headline have been intelligible even five years ago?

I think about this a lot lately.

Here was a thing I sent to a colleague just the other day:

"Could you IM me the URL and login so I can FTP the Power Point?"

1992's "Crazy" is today's "Technically Proficient!"
