I hereby claim dibs, first tracks, shotgun, et cetera upon the proper name of the current age

Monday, 11 October 2010

I formally declare the Information Age at an end and we’re now—let me remind you, please—250 years past the Age of Reason.

Now begins—and I’m certain what future historians survive the interesting mix of genetics that fertility drugs and cosmetic surgery will confer upon our distant descendants will agree—the Age of Self Congratulation. Civilization’s constant prattle of just out of reach glory days, commence!

Enjoy your era, Generation ADHD. You’ve earned it.
