It's a Great Time to Be Alive

Is it just me, or does anyone else think it's too cute for words that the internet archive (at www.archive.org) is called the Wayback Machine?  Or that Altavista's translator is called Babel Fish?

It warms my heart to see real technologies approximating the silly, comic science fiction inventions of my youth.

Well, you know, the folks who came up with the technologies were likely fans of the same comic SF material you were!
