What a great video! Everyone should watch it. For those of us who have been around for a while, it just drives home that what we’ve seen so far is nothing compared to what’s coming!
My first home computer had 4k of memory – notepad.exe in Windows Vista takes around 150k.
The first terminal I used had a 300 (30 characters / sec) baud modem. My current broadband connection is 800,000 characters / sec.
The first floppy disc I messed with was 8" across. The first one I owned was a 5.25" single sided floppy that stored 160k and it cost several hundred dollars, in the early 1980’s. Hard drives will reach roughly one terabyte this year (something like 6 million times as big). For $500.
The first LCD monitor I bought was 16" and cost well over $1000. Today I run a 24" that cost under $700. And that’s in just 5 years.
Imagine where the next 10, 20 and 30 years will take us!
