Homage to an Age of Industry

The artifacts of the Age of Industry are solid things
Big things; of metal, concrete and stone

What of the Information Age?
What will we leave behind for future generations?

The artifacts of the Age of Information are ephemeral things
Little things; of bits and bytes and nanotech

Will they last the test of time?
Will Cyberspace outlast the Engineering of our past?
