What defines our lives today
« on: September 30, 2014, 11:14:01 PM »

Just a reminder to ourselves of which technologies are so self evident nowdays which didn't exist or weren't widespread a while ago... Please feel free to add stuff and precision - sorry this post is just a rough sketch as I am traveling... Most of these became $100bn+ worth businesses at some point.

Time since major breakthrough adoption
~10 years: social networking, navigation systems, 3D printers, LEDs, flat screen TV, ETF, drones
~20 years: laser surgery, internet/email, mobile phones, asset-backed securities, credit cards
~30 years: MRI, PC, CD recordings, microwave
~40 years: stock options, washing machines
~50 years: space travel, rock'n'roll
~60 years: atomic weapons, television, arthroscopic surgery, containerization
~70 years: telephone, tanks
~80 years: aircraft, automatic weapons, motorways
~90 years: radio
~100 years: car, electricity, subway, x-ray
