Hitch Your Wagon to A Star
Our world is becoming smaller every day. Advancing computer technology brings the remotest part of the world to our home at the mere click of a button. Can you imagine a life without computers today?
Apart from the more obvious uses like the internet, which gives us access to ‘everything under the sun’, computers play a far reaching role in our lives and affect us in more ways than we can imagine. Their influence is universal. Computers are used in applications ranging from running a school, diagnosing a disease, and designing buildings to constructing and launching a space vehicle.
Would you believe that the first computers were the size of a small room? Doesn’t that sound unbelievable today when we have access to ipods, play stations and laptops!
Many people deserve credit for helping the computer evolve, through a series of inventions, into what it is today – a complex piece of machinery that influences every sphere of our lives. Would this feat have been possible if they had not risked failure in their endeavour to achieve their dreams?
The computer and the internet might just have remained a distant dream for us but for the courage of those mavericks who dared to dream big and hitch their wagon to a star!
Reach for the stars! Dare to dream big! Hitch your wagon to a star!
