El Comienzo de los Sueños de Grandeza Tecnológica, allá por 1889
"...The Universal Exhibition of 1889, far more than the Paris Exhibition of 1900, marked a turning point in our collective history. The prognostications of Jules Verne and H.G.Wells, and our subsequent obsession with the technological millenium, have their roots in 1889. For it was in 1889, not 1900, that so many elements in the agenda for our own century -cultural, technical, and architectural- were adumbrated..."
