Most Influential

Someone told me the other day that he'd recently met a 100-year old woman.  He asked her in her long life what was the most influential change that she had witnessed.  She said it was antibiotics.  When she was a child many people would die as doctors couldn't stop infections.  He volunteered that in his life he thought the most dramatic change was the ability to obtain information.  He cited needing a piece of equipment for an old car that he was renovating.  He found the exact piece he needed on the Internet from someone in Germany.  It would have been impossible to get it any other way.

So what do you think is the most important change in your lifetime?  As for me, I'll tell you next week.
