On dinosaurs

The way of information,
has made its way no less,
from very large to very small;
remarkable success.
Computers were enormous,
full filling up a room,
a dinosaur of science;
condemned to final doom.
And yet within the dying,
new forms were brought to birth,
as time reduced the size of them;
maintained intrinsic worth.

1: any of a group (Dinosauria) of extinct often very large chiefly terrestrial carnivorous or herbivorous reptiles of the Mesozoic era
2: any of various large extinct reptiles (as ichthyosaurs) other than the true dinosaurs
3: one that is impractically large, out-of-date, or obsolete


  1. Amazing how much that science has changed, isn't it?

  2. funny to think that even computers can now be relegated to being dinos. For me it was first the typewriters. My old one which just fascinates my two little boys.

  3. I was waiting for someone to do this theme. You did it beautifully.

  4. I like the fact that a computer can be a dinosaur. Last week's model is already obsolete! Very nice poem.

  5. It's amazing how fast technology advances! :)

  6. It's an interesting idea, how quickly science can become outmoded. Nice take on the prompt. Thanks for linking up. Please come back tomorrow for the new challenge.
