#FOWC — I Am the Artifact

93605D3B-DCC9-472A-A495-6500A447DCEBWhen I think back to when I was a young man and what was, at the time, the latest technologies, it seems that most of them are now artifacts of a simpler age.

Whizbang products like transistor radios, cassette decks, electric typewriters, fax machines, telephone answering machines, rotary and push button telephones, cathode ray tubes, floppy disks, dial-up modems, dot matrix printers, FotoMats, pagers/beepers, and Atari video game players seem so quaint now.

Oh wait. Maybe it’s me. Maybe I am the real artifact.
