In 1959, a physicist named Richard Fyenman took the stage at CalTech for the annual meeting of the American Physical Society.

A couple of recent headlines caught my attention. From Quartz: From Re/code: I imagine myself sitting there in 2004, given a sneak peek at the future, and contemplating these headlines.
