Living in the Future, Star Trek Style [INFOGRAPHIC]

I have pointed it out before in postings here, on Twitter, and on our various shows, we are living with Star Trek technology already today… well, in many areas at least. In some ways, we surpassed what was predicted 45 years ago when the series premiered. For example, fax machines are really a relic of the past (even though some insist on still using them). We saw similar technology in Trek originally. Today we have iPhones, iPads, flat screen HDTVs… it is almost the bridge of the Enterprise right there.

Star Trek is Just Around the Corner

Every month there seems to be a new post somewhere comparing today's technology with that of Star Trek's technology, so I won't repeat that here. Though with that said, I thought I would share the following infographic on it. It is not complete (in addition to fax machines which are now passé today, we saw Uhura wearing what can be compared to today's bluetooth ear pieces. Neither are represented on this graphic, but there's probably too many to include in one graphic anyway).

Instagram "Fun Facts" Infographic via Followgram

Passing Passenger Trains

The infographic below is from Followgram. It depicts some "fun facts" about Instagram. According to the note on the bottom of the infographic, Techcrunch and the Instagram blog is the source of the data in the graphic.

Having been on Instagram from just a week after they launched, I have seen how they have grown and matured as a social network. Most recently they announced that they have passed 7 million in users. It was only in June when they had hit 5 million. I remember each of these milestones as Instagram hit them. This infographic illustrates them as well other interesting facts.

My Almost Correct Twitter Infographic

By coincidence, I have been planning a series of Twitter-based articles titled, "You Are What You Tweet." It's also the name of this infographic below based on my Twitter activity, which is mostly accurate except replace the pack of cigarettes in hand (I don't smoke) with an iPhone. Also, I am quite sure I send more than 1.27 tweets a day. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that already. I also wonder how the "enthusiasm" and "interestingness" is determined. Finally, half of the topics listed are actually other Twitter users, perhaps it should had focused on the hashtags I use.
