Itreasure the analogy between aging and climbing a mountain. Ofcourse there are differences, mountain climbing is usually voluntary. As you climb a mountain you lose the ground detail but on a clear day broad views ofthe landscape are visible. The view from the mountain top is sometimes helpful to those working on the ground. I hope that the broad view ofthe technological landscape I present today will be of some use to those ofyou still lucky enough to be tilling that landscape. I will refer primarily to the IJS scene hut T believe that the technological landscape is as universal as human nature.
