Well, computer tech moves quickly (I'd say 'in internet time' but it
already did before the net was popular).

I remember the days before the great internet explosion, 1991 and such,
where I could talk about the marvels of the net and get looks 'Martijn
is talking about computer stuff again'. These days I sit in the bus and
hear people talk about 'getting email'. And I'm only 25. :) I can go on
and on about the MSX-2, its VDP chip and Z80 assembler. :)

This made me come up with the Quantum-Martijn-Solipsist theory of
Reality Alteration: 'If Martijn rambles about something exciting to
people that people don't get, reality will change within a few years so
that suddenly everybody is using it.'

I'm rambling about Python these days. Yesterday I read a paper from
Guido about how he was thinking about bringing Python (or some successor
language) to *billions* of users. :)
