and it seems like we've made great strides in computing power but arent really doing anything with it. how many of the best computer science etc graduates are following the big money to work at facebook, apple, microsoft etc to basically develop dumb consumer products instead of working for NASA or doing research in solar power or what have you.
the statement that the cell phone in your pocket has tons more computing power than all the machines that took the US to the moon so often toted as progress, but i mean really, we have all this computing power now that's been redirected to making it faster for rich kids to upload their pictures of 25 dollar cheeseburgers to facebook instead of going things that are actually impressive/potentially beneficial.
i dont know maybe im wrong and the more 'important' technological innovations/adaptations just arent as obvious in society. idk im just rambling rayne what is your opinion am i TOTALLY WRONG?
