Well, we’ve made it through the first decade of the 21st century.
Hard to believe, huh? Where does the time go?
 
 
 A hundred years ago, it was the end of 1910. Here’s what the world had experienced that year:
 
  • The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated.
  • Yellow Cab was founded.
  • The Earth passed through the tail of Comet Halley.
  • An act of the U.S. Congress established Glacier National Park in Montana.
  • First flight of a seaplane.
  • First flight of the jet engine airplane.
 
And here’s what we had to look forward to in 1911:
 
  • The first landing of an aircraft on a ship.
  • International Women’s Day was celebrated for the first time.
  • The New York Public Library opened.
  • Hiram Bingham III re-discovers Machu Picchu “the Lost City of the Incas.”
  • Chevrolet officially enters the automobile market in competition with the Ford Model T.
  • First expedition reaches the South Pole.

A hundred years later, we’ve lived through the invention of color TV, internet, cell phones, modern refrigerators, cars with AC units, tape players, records, ipods, cell phones, Starbucks, VHS, movies, microwaves, Facebook!, and countless other inventions.  2010 debuted the iPad, a driverless car, the first synthetic cell, and spray-on fabric, with some pretty crazy inventions in the works as well.
 
That just begs the question:  
What will 2011 bring?
 
For me, I hope it brings a cleaner apartment, a few published poems, and a triathlon. What about you? What goals do you have for the next year? And what new inventions do think we’ll see this year? Post below!
