Time to party!
Like it's 1999?
I'm not a fan of 'pre-announcements'; teasers and the like. Hell! Even the fanbois are getting bored with those.
Even what little supporting description there is, is divisive: "outlasted the naysayers".
The majority of those categorised and denigrated as naysayers; were previously enthusiasts and even contributors, worn down and turned off by the endless premature hyperbole; constant bickering; repeated reboots; never-ending next Christmases. Not to mention that "even its designers said it was impossible."
Will I read/watch the event? Sure. Will I watch it live? Depends if there are any reruns showing of "Star Trek Into Darkness" or "Matrix Revolutions" showing on catchup that day.
But I will watch/read it. Eventually. But my expectations will be very low.
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
