Fortran? Now, I'm not a CompSci by any means, but isn't that a "dead" computer language?

FORTRAN is not dead, but by no means is it mainstream anymore. I actually had to look at som FORTRAN code at work a couple of months ago. However, anyone who ever used it when it was "in" seems to hate it. It definitely wouldn't make computers "easy to use."

Yeah I looked around a bit in the Fortran world. If you make a mistake, your fucked. Seeing that really makes you wonder about technology doesn't it? What do we have today that is predicting what it will be like in the future that when the future comes it will laughable at how much faster technology progressed than the predictions.

Did he tell you that photo is a "photo-shop" job? Because it is. It was one of the very first photo-shop projects that won an award 5 years ago.

But here's a definite truth: Popular Mechanics was quoted around 1947 (not sure of exact year) that computers at the turn of the century may be feasible for home use, and could weigh as little as 1.5 tons

Yea I read that also..lol the pic I posted originated from Time/Lifes' "is it real or creatively altered?" - that one is altered in something like 10 different places then turned black & white. It was done by a a 15 year old kid who won a scholarship to an art institute for doing it. (He's probably doing the fake Christmas bows now on the Lexus ads...)
