We live in the future. Here is some proof:
My Mom does not live here but, recently having suffered a stroke, has come to stay temporarily as we have one of the top stroke treatment centers in the world here. Yesterday we visited the neurologist on her case for the first time. After the regular pleasantries were exchanged, the doctor mentioned that he had not yet received her medical records from Iowa where she was formerly being treated.
“No problem,” said my mother, “If I can use your computer I can pull them up for you.”
And she did exactly that. Went to her University of Iowa healthcare account, found the records in question, and printed them out right there in his office on the desktop laser printer. The doctor then had all he needed to proceed.
The future is now.
