I’m late to the party, as usual, but I’m participating in the 2014 Second Annual National Wormhole Week (or 2014 Wormfest): For 2014, the theme is to name one thing where science advances mankind, and one where the same technology with unforeseen consequences will go too far and set mankind back.
This hop is hosted by Stephen Tremp, Alex J. Cavanaugh, and L. Diane Wolfe and the list of those participating is here.
Here goes…One of the everyday things that has made the biggest impact on me, apart from the calculator and cellular phone, is the television remote. That little doodad has made life so easy that sometimes I amaze myself with the things I do.

With all the advances we’ve made in technology, I sometimes think that our brains are in danger of atrophying from disuse.
