Technology Related Interest
The technology based story I read about and was interested in regards to a podcast about astrology. An astronomer in Minnesota was interviewed for a pod cast, where he mentioned that astrology has been inaccurate for thousands of years because of the earth's wobble. Many people viewed it on line and where apparently unaware of this fact; so much so that the uproar it caused made astrologers have to alter their charts. I find it interesting that one innacuous question in an interview posted on line can single handedly change commonly viewed beliefs that were traditionally held "accurate" for thousands of years. This is the impact technology has on our society today.
