The robots are coming – yesterday!

We served 900 lunches every day throughout the summer.  We flipped 900 burgers every day.  I can only wonder what I would have been doing the summer of 1988 if a robot had been able to flip those burgers for us. And I imagine this robot could have managed the flipping without all the whining, moaning and groaning that we somehow had the time to melodramatically gesticulate, despite having to flip 900 burgers every – single – day.

That was then and this is now … for now.

…along came this weird device.  It had no keyboard, no wires, just a screen.  This was followed in the Spring of 2010 by a letter from Steve Jobs slamming Flash in an open letter to the world.  This was followed by the headlines, “Flash is Dead!”.  I remember firing up my computer that morning, seeing the headlines and just staring at the screen, frozen.  I was in shock.
