Here is a quote I thought some of you might enjoy. "Furniture as an art form. Only a favored few used to be able to indulge a taste for furnishings that were more than merely functional. Because the future holds more for us in terms of education, income, and leisure our taste levels are bound to rise and we shall find furniture and other furnishings that are also an art form. This handcrafted metal cabinet is an example." The cabinet pictured is by Paul Evans. What they didn't know was that we'd find the furniture that was created during that time period to be a valued art form today.
On education, "Ph.Ds will run in families; everybody will be taking courses on the computer". " "The entire emphasis on learning has changed. We use to think that a learned man was one who had all the facts in his head. Today we have the facts accessibly stored in computer memories, microfilm in libraries, and other repositories of knowledge. Learning is knowing how to gain access to these stored facts and organizing them once you find them" Dr. Lee Goldman Carnegie Institute of Technolgy.
