Asterism 66 - Computer

aster66

The ET’s almost mistook Computers for Earth’s dominant life form.  Because of our dependence on Computers, the ET’s still have doubts about us.  With Computers we ushered in yet another revolution – the informational revolution.  We are not yet halfway through this transformation.  And these are just the linear/serial Computers.  We have yet to see the marvels of parallel processing Computers.  Industrialized societies could not survive without Computers.  They give us instant communications, accessible information, and data storage.  Will they remain our tools and toys?  Or become our peers, symbionts, or masters?

15 stars – 11 from Lupus, 4 from Centaurus.

Right Ascension = 15h06m
