What does stay behind to define our generation?


I have got a handwritten letter from 1850 in my hands and it made me think about being alive in another time: reading by candle-light, nightfall with absolute darkness, the only heat available from fire, journeys take months and years and most people live in the exact place they are born, there are tools but no machines, seasons matter and animals are essential... I look at my laptop now and wonder which bit of our life is going to be the most important artefact to people a few generations from now...
