We shall start where the last man left off.

As time goes by, we see technology expand and grow beyond our wildest dreams, yet we all know the future holds even greater possibilities. We live in a world of instant communication, information, and gratification because of technology, but this has been the norm since the beginning of time.

We built tools out of sticks and stones to keep us warm and fed. We created cures for diseases that extended our lives. We created elixirs that may not cure what ails us, but have become a daily part of our diet. We used the power of invention to create while others used it to destroy. We invent things that lead to countless new inventions while we also invent things that don't need much improving.

We built large devices that can do simple tasks, but we also built small devices that can perform both simple tasks and the most complex calculations.

1955-2011.

And although the future might look bleak on the surface, man's ingenuity and ability to invent can only make us better as a society for many millennia.

On that note, perhaps it's time I get an iPod. I'm thinking an iPod Touch... 5th generation when it comes out. If I had more music, I'd go Classic, but I don't have nearly enough music to fill it. Plus, I can try this Angry Birds game Conan O'Brien keeps joking about.
