Which would be a bigger shock from a technology standpoint, 2000 to 1950 or 1950 to 1900?

    1950 to 2000 we landed a man on the moon for God’s sake.

    I was a child in the 70s. To me, going back nearly 50 years would not seem that big of a technological shift other than computers, game consoles, and the internet. Also, as big as the space program and the moon landings in 1969 were, they are basically irrelevant to everyday life. From my point of view, trading in a Station Wagon for a Ford Focus doesn't seem that mind blowing and either does trading in a 70s TV for a modern cable television with a hundred channels on and nothing to watch. I fear that we might be stagnating and feel that maybe we need to reconnect with our obsession over technological progress.
