There does seem to be a recurring theme in software that pretty much
everything we do today had its foundations laid before I was born (1970)
and certainly before I started programming (1981, Sinclair ZX81).
We've got more and more hardware and network capabilities, but mostly
apply them to more of the same with an ever-broader audience. Hopefully,
at any rate.

That's one way to look at it!
Someone (Mike Champion?) asked a while ago if there was a catalog of the
more obscure corners of SGML. That still might be worth pursuing,
though I'm not sure how to go about it.
