I like all the ideas! Props to whoever came up with them and thank you Natalia for typing it up.

I do have a couple favorites, like technology, cell phones, the Apple company, etc.

I was also going to add science to my list of favorites, but them I remembered that the YBCA already had a biotechnology exhibit and I think it is in the YBCA's best interests not to be repetitive.

My one other comment is that this is the "Future Eyes," so I wanted to toss out some of the ideas like imperialism, and history, which are all in the past. I'm not trying to say that they're bad ideas, but I think they fit the context of the exhibit a little less well than some of the other ideas.

Just my two cents...
