Watching this again, I’m reminded that we’re still very much in the infancy of what computers are capable of. Rather, let me put that another way. We’re still in the infancy of our minds and our cultures understanding how we can best use computers and all their capabilities.
In steam engine terms, we’re still just beyond the aelopile and figuring out how to use the steam engine to pump water from mines in the late 1600s.
To truly use computers to their full potential, it’ll require a revolution not just in computers but in our minds — and that hasn’t really occurred yet. Maybe it never will, but I think it’s nearly inevitable.
We have all the tools, all the parts, all the basics, all the components, but we’re chipmunks chewing on wires yet. One day, our minds will shift and the entire world will look different but only because we have different eyes.
