    That makes me think about resources/need ratio. A dystopian future? Colonies on other planets?

    Wad da ya think?
    Well...Soylent Green is people.

    Seriously, though - I believe the population growth rate is exponential and is going to be a real problem real soon. I don't know a lot of the answers, but I do reflect sometimes on our place in the US as one of the most privileged populations in the world. We have the luxury to complain about GMO crops and pesticides and to buy organic this and that while other societies just want - and need - something to eat. We have a hideous imbalance of power and privilege on this planet and I don't know what to do about that. But I am afraid that the planet's ability to support this human population is coming to a breaking point and we need to do something before it breaks and crashes catastrophically. A controlled crash landing is better than plowing in nose first.

    So yesterday I was lecturing in class and I was saying I needed a floppy disk reader because I had a bunch at home and I didn't know what was stored on them. I held one up for the class to see and asked if anyone had seen one before. This girl who hadn't really been paying attention looks up and says "OMG! You have a 'save' icon!! Where did you find it? That would go perfect with my 'easy' button!"

    Only two students out of thirty-one knew what it was.

    I remember creating a hard copy recovery "disk" for a Windows95 computer once. It took 33 disks to hold the whole thing.

    I remember installing Windows on customer PCs - all 31 floppies. Took a looooong time.

    In 1981 I was walking with a buddy across campus at SJSU and he dropped his stack of punched cards.

    He was seriously on the verge of tears.
