Hohman 1 Writers Memo I am fascinated by technology and have always been so. As a kid I grew up watch Star Trek and Stargate so many other sci-fi shows. The imagination of the plots and the technology that was used always drew me in. I was able to watch people living and reacting to situations that I could never really be in.

In just a few years from now there is sure to be some advancement that will make 2011 seem like the distant past. As our technology becomes more advanced we become more reliant on it. In the Stone Age everyone relied on their trusty spear for protection, today everyone relies on their trusty Smart Phones for just about everything. The major difference being that a spear is much easier to repair and a user actually knows every aspect of how it works. So as we move towards the future what will become of our
