soundminded Posted December 6, 2007 Report Share Posted December 6, 2007 Once upon a time at least in my living memory, people used to imagine what the future would be like and how their own period in history would be seen through a retrospective lens of some decades or even centuries. People used to put artifacts of their era in sealed "time capsules" for future generations to one day dig up and study as a way of helping them understand their time and what they felt was important. Some have even been sent into space in case alien intelligence should happen upon it. Often the assessment of events in their own time is seen retrospectively as having been distorted, people in their own era not having seeing the forest for the trees and the future rarely turns out to be what most people imagined. Still it can be a lot of fun to conjecture. So assuming the world will still be around in 50, 75, 100 years, technology will ultimately advance, and people will still be much as they are today, still enjoy listening to and playing musical instruments, still attend live concert performances, still enjoy recordings of music in their homes, what will it be like then, how will they view the current era of technology of recording and reproducing music, and how will the contribution of Dr. Bose be seen as part of the mosaic of this era? I think I'll hold back on my own thoughts for awhile, I'd like to see what others think first. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
