Shocked, amazed, and not surprised at all.
You don't know me, but I met you and the /. crew at Linuxworld nearly a dozen years ago. You guys were hot stuff back then, but today? Who knew?

Still, so many things have changed --

No more World Trade Center and no more Space Shuttle.
Innocent little cellphones are now GPS-enabled computers more powerful than my old workstation.
Steve Jobs is moving on from Apple (again)
But he's leaving behind iPods and iPhones and iPads.
Madonna's still around, but we're no longer GaGa for her.
Which still leaves her better off than Saddam Hussein and Moamar Gaddafi.

Change is a good thing, partly because the wistfulness it brings drives home how great things were and partly because of the hope -- and real possibility -- that things to come will be greater still.

Congrats for a great run.
Live long and prosper.
Or something like that.
