Two decades of progress can change how we live and think in ways that boggle the mind. Audio is a small piece of that, but it's our piece. Twenty years ago, the PC got rudimentary sound cards; now the entire “multitrack recording studio" lives on our computers. Some of us saw that development as inevitable but in 1996 those smart people sounded fairly edgy, to say the least. And of those smart people, who among them saw that texting would be the “killer app” for smart phones, in many ways trumping audio communication? Let’s take our accumulated wisdom from the past 20 years of growth and non-growth of audio and computing, and see if we can’t get some feel for what it will be like in this room 20 years from now, looking back. With luck, we will be nodding our heads sagely, saying, “Yep, we saw that one coming way back in 2016!"
