the future

Here's the future - the two sons of my colleague Emily Anderson.  It's eerie to think that I'll have long retired before Dylan, on the left (and below), is old enough to go to college, and almost certainly I'll be well retired, too, before Owen, on the right, is being dropped off in fourteen or fifteen years time with his bags full of - well, what will the well-equipped college student have then?  A computer, I'm sure, but what else?  Let's hope books.  Given his mother, some running shoes.  And will his choice of majors be more or less the same as now, or something radically different?
