No-one can deny that there has been a tremendous leap in technology in the last 2 decades and this was brought home to me quite strongly during a couple of recent conversations. In both cases we were talking about a place and the impression it had made. In both cases, the mobile phone came out and I was shown a video or picture of the location. In the past, this might have entailed a trip to the attic where photos were stored, and certainly you wouldn’t be able to show your colour prints if you were dining out!

What really struck me about this was that it has become commonplace to share personal photos in this way, and that this has happened over a relatively short period of time. I can foresee a near future when you will be invited into a holographic representation of someone’s holiday snaps!
