Sometimes its the little things that show you how much things have changed.

Yesterday I went to a funeral in New Plymouth, and it was being streamed live over the internet to family that couldn’t be there in person.

In fact there was a subtle digital capability to the entire event, the nicely designed and digitally printed order of service, the big LED TV (at least 60′) showing the now obligatory slideshow of digitised memories and the streaming all showed how engrained digital tech now is in our lives.

Go back 3,000 years and the only people who got that kind of send off were the pharaohs.

Our kids will leave behind a cradle to grave archive of digital memories and their descendants will know more about them than all previous generations combined.
