Technology is Slowing Down

People often write "technology is advancing at an ever increasing pace," but I don't buy it. Our grandparents' generation saw the invention of the car, the radio, the TV, countless vaccines, the jet plane, trans-oceanic flight, the atom bomb, space flight, live satellite broadcasting, the birth control pill, the computer and the internet. Our generation has witnessed the last one, and we're probably going to see autonomous robots too, but somehow I doubt we'll see as many humanity-changing technologies in our lifetime.

I'm not complaining, I'm just saying.
