Spock Is Dead

I had just finished interviewing someone about the FCC’s upholding Network Neutrality, when I got the news about Leonard Nimoy. I was walking through a Silicon Valley office park when I saw a man crying on a park bench. He was busily texting as I watched other people walking around begin checking their devices. “Spock is dead!” another man shouted. It was big news here. Many people have no clue how big an influence Star Trek had on people. Young people watched that show and decided they were going study math and science. Leonard Nimoy’s Spock is an example of how art inspired technology and in turn created more art. Live long and prosper.
