Host’s Topic: Future nostalgists
We’re nostalgic for our formative computing years now, but lots of that old cool stuff got discarded or broken or traded along the way. D’oh! If only we’d been thinking of now then. But the kids of today will be our age at some point. Are we doing any better for their generation? What will they want back? Or, maybe easier: What do we wish our parents or former selves had hung onto?
