The pace of the technology

Junko,

You made my day today.

Just the slide show itself is so much engrossing!

Aprt from reliving the memories of my stay in Paris some 27 years back, I also relived my journey as an engineer from my college days to the present stage.

 

Two and half centuries from an adding machine to the multiplying machine - The pace looks so slow now , but those were the visionaries who brough the real industrial revolution to this world.

Compared to those original ideas , what we are doing today looks just some incremental work.

The real heros of that age are the mechanical engineers , though today they are relegated to background activity while the electronics and the IT is at the forefront.

Thanks Junko for this tour of the museum. It's always good to see the history of technology.


I'll go to this one next week ~
If you know any other techbnology related museums/exhibitions in Paris, I'd be glad to know or go !

Two obvious ones are Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie and Palais de la Découverte. And if you happen to come to Munich, Germany, be sure to visit the Deutsches Museum.

@prabhakar, I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the slideshow.  together. I spent a whole afternoon last Friday there, had a great time, and I enjoyed even more putting together this slideshow.

That's exactly the I way felt when I was at the museum. And I couldn't agree with you more, when you pointed out:

The real heros of that age are the mechanical engineers.

Indeed.

I am glad you are visiting the Museum of Arts et Metier next week. Yes, it won't dissapoint you.

As Frank noted, Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is also a good one. Well curated and educational.

Thanks for the reccomendation- a good reason to go back to Paris- as if one needed a another one.

Perhaps I will be able to add it to the next edition of my blog Touring as an Engineer.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
