126: How Star Trek Created Our Present and Future
It was Star Trek’s 50th anniversary a few days ago – I go into some detail on how Star Trek likely launched million of careers, and not just in technology. Star Trek was one of the few shows which gave us an optimistic vision of the future, where not only have we created amazing tech, our social structures are also a reflection of Gene Roddenberry’s vision. If you think about it, our current present owes much to Star Trek. On the other hand, there is plenty still to do, so the next time you are looking for something to build, watch Star Trek again – you’ll be amazed at the ideas you’ll get.
