Definate +1 to that.

I look at how my father's job has changed in his 49+ years; he's gone
from a hardware-in-the-loop simulator that took a room full of analog
computer (because digital computers weren't fast enough) to where
computers are small and powerful enough that they looked at running a
sim in real-time on the flying vehicle (as additional guidance
feedback).

I dont't think anyone can realistically say what the Internet will look
like 10 years from now, much less 50.  Pundits like to guess, but they
usually miss their "next year" predictions anyway. :-)
