Wonders about the News 100 Years Ahead

About: 100 years ago: October 12, 2010

By M.E. Lewis

Have you ever thought 100 years from now how people will be reading Columbia Magazine.

Computers will probably be a thing of the past and the stories will be put in a machine and you can walk into the machine and experience the story all over again.

Too much Star Trek watching. Ha ha.

Something for the minds of Adair County to ponder.M.E. Lewis

What a set-up for a Futurist. If there are any futurists among us. After all, our city's wonderful Grand Duchy of Fenwick like motto is Looking back to forge ahead. I'm thinking you won't have to walk into a machine to re-experience the past.

All newborns will be shipped to China for chip implantation which will allow them to shake their heads three times, then time tap their foreheads in code (not QWERTY) while seated and the experience will come back. Of course, the chip will automatically debit your account. I don't know, I was born 100 years to late. This needs to come from someone born 100 years ahead of their time. -ED

PS. There are people wondering what you are. There's Time Capsule on the Adair Annex which will allow a look at the past, with or without a Chinese chip implant.

In the accompanying article M.E. Lewis wonders whether we'll need the internet and CM and the like in 100 years. She's thinking that in 2110 we'll step into a machine and experience the past. For now, we're using things like the time capsule buried over 18 years ago to be opened at its appointed time to know about many important experiences of the past. Does anyone remember what was in it? -CM
