The Morlocks are here: Why computing’s new paradigm is the time machine

January 11, 2019 / Michael Kanellos

Opinion We had the desktop. Then came the cloud. And next, we’ll have the time machine.The Time Machine is one of the classic 60s-era Sci Fi films. Based on the H.G. Wells novel, a Victorian-era inventor (Rod Taylor) gets propelled into the year 802,701 A.D. by a barber chair with a roulette wheel grafted onto it. In the distant future, he meets the Eloi, a future breed of humans that look like they just popped over from the country club. But just underneath the surface of the Earth dwell Morlocks, hairy, unkempt albinos who are nonetheless active, ambitious and clever enough to turn the Eloi into a free range food source. He escapes, explains everything to Mr. Ed’s best friend (Alan Young) and returns for his love interest, Weena.
