The caption reads:
Scientists from the RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a “home computer” could look like in the year 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use.
Can the web and social networking change the Wine industry? It can and it will. What this picture illustrates (and is somewhat comical at first) is that you’ve got to set the goal clearly for what happens next. Obviously, we far exceeded expectations on this one!
For wine, the Internet will provide the personal, peer-to-peer experience that will enhance your wine life experiences, introducing you to new people, places, and wines in ways we can’t even imagine right now. In fact, you’ll be able to sample the wine with all the senses without even being at the winery (just wanted to write something that may or may not pan out in 50 years
