146/365: How to Catch a Dragon

I spent the day obsessively watching the live coverage of Dragon's arrival at the International Space Station, streaming it on the iPad while I tried to also get work done. In true nerd fashion, I had my phone playing Strauss's "Blue Danube" waltz on a loop the whole time.

Throughout the day, I was struck repeatedly by the profound realization of living in the future: I was watching history unfolding, in space, live, streamed across a vast global telecommunications network, and delivered wirelessly to a powerful hand-held computer.

Just take a moment and realize how amazing that is.
