Everything about this post is amazing, and would be science fiction a few decades ago. Not only can we look inside my wife and see my baby, months before it will be born, but I was able to record that on a device that I can put into my shirt pocket. And, within 20 minutes of making that recording, I was able to show the recording to my sister, thousands of miles away in Haiti, and various other friends and family around the world.
Of course, there’s also the incredibly amazing fact that this little person is in there, and I can listen to the heartbeat and watch the little hands move about. Amazing, and exciting, and terrifying all at the same time. And this kid will grow up surrounded by technology that was barely imagined when I was born.
So, welcome to YouTube, little person. Here’s your debut.
